The Ohio Turpike starts at the Pennsylvania border by following I-76. It then proceeds to join I-80 near Youngstown, and also I-90 just west of Cleveland. Interstates 80 and 90 run together through the rest of the state, all the way to the Indiana border, where the Ohio Turnpike connects to the Indiana Toll Road, and the I- 80 / 90 combination continues under that name.
