Because of the irregular state line in the Ohio River channel, all but about 300 feet of bridge on its north end is in Kentucky, considered, but unsigned as Kentucky State Highway 8-Spur. Ohio State Highway 852 ends at state line, 300 feet after the north steel truss begins in the above Street View.
