junction with U.S. Route 224 (US 224) and SR 66 in Ottoville to its eastern terminus at the
intersection of SR 115 and SR 12 in Vaughnsville, nearly 5 miles (8.0 km) southwest of Columbus

The SR 189 designation was applied in the early 1920s. The designation was on a route that was

§Route description[edit]
SR 189 begins at a three-way intersection, in Ottoville, with SR 66 entering from the south and
US 224 and SR 66 entering from the west. SR 189 heads east concurrent with US 224, passing
through residential and commercial properties.[4][5][6] Here, SR 189 has its highest traffic counts;
within the 2011 ODOT survey, the road is listed with an average annual daily traffic(AADT) of
3,930 vehicles on a section of highway that is concurrent with US 224.[7] US 224 turns north and
SR 189 continues easterly. The route passes through residential properties, before curving
towards the southeast. After curving towards the southeast, the leaves the village of Ottoville and
the road passes through farmland. The highway enters the village of Fort Jennings, passing
through residential properties. The highway has a T-intersection with SR 190.[4][5][6]
At the T-intersection, SR 189 turns towards the southwest, concurrent with SR 190. The road
passes through commercial properties, before the concurrency ends with SR 189 turning towards
the southeast. SR 189 crosses the Auglaize River and leaves the village of Fort Jennings. The
road heads east-southeast through farmland as a two-lane highway. The highway cross over
the Ottawa River and enters Rimer. SR 189 makes a sharp curve towards the south, followed by
a sharp curve towards the east. The road makes another sharp curve towards the south, after
leaving Rimer the road curves towards the southeast, paralleling the Ottawa River. As the river
curves towards the south, SR 189 curves due east.[4][5][6] SR 189 heads east towards Vaughnsville,
the AADT drops to 330 vehicles through this section of road.[7] In Vaughnsville, SR 189 has an
intersection with SR 115. Continuing east after SR 189 ends is SR 12.[4][5][6] There are no
segments of SR 189 that are included as a part of the National Highway System (NHS).[8]
