New York State Route 175 is a west–east state highway located in
Onondaga County, New York, in the United States. The 15.46-mile
(24.88 km) route begins at an intersection with U.S. Route 20 east of
the village of Skaneateles. It heads towards the northeast as Lee Mulroy
Road, traversing farmland. It then passes through the village of
Marcellus before ending at a junction with U.S. Route 11 in Syracuse.
Designated in the 1930 renumbering of state highways in New York, the
highway brought about an increase in population and development along
its route. The section of Route 175 from downtown Marcellus to New York
State Route 173 in Onondaga was built along the historical Seneca
Turnpike, which was established in 1800 and dissolved in 1852. At 157
miles (253 km), the turnpike was the longest in the state at the time
and was instrumental in the development of the villages of Skaneateles
