I have a delivery tomorrow evening at a Walmart DC in Richmond, OH. From there, I head west to a delivery at a Meijer in Tipp City, OH. As I look at my route, I can shave a few miles off the trip by taking US 22 from Wintersville down to I-77 near Cambridge, OH (I-77 down to I-70). I have looked up US 22 in my atlas and don't see any height or weight restrictions on the OH section of US 22. Just because there are no restrictions doesn't mean that it would be a good route to take in a truck. I have never been on this particular highway before. Anyone have any experience driving this particular section of this particular highway? If so, do you advise using it or not?

I would genuinely appreciate experiential input on this particular highway. Bumping in case it got overlooked.

I've driven 22 through there numerous times. It's a truck friendly route.

As with all areas, consult the atlas for low bridges, route restrictions, and the routing itself. Eyes on road signs for alerts of " No Trucks Here".

Great to hear.

Of course and always.

Thank you much for the insight.

As a Walmart driver who has driven out of Wintersville a lot you can take 22 all the way down to 77 but I would suggest taking OH 7 down to 70 then go across as it takes the same amount of time.

Thank you very much for that perspective. That is one thing I had thought about but hadn't expressed here: Would the shorter distance actually save time?

You're probably there & back now, but Tom actually said 22 is just fine; he takes it often. He mentioned the 7 & 70 as well, but said that 22 would be easier.

ps: How'd it go?

I opted to go the way another driver on here suggested, which was OH-7 to I-70. Shorter miles going US-22, but same travel time.

I am now headed east to a two-stopper in Severn, MD and Greencastle, PA.

Glad it all worked out for ya, man! Since you are often in Ohio, do you have this app? OHGO , Ohio Roads & Traffic.

It's a very helpful tool !

Be safe,
