Route descriptionEdit

 
NY 235 approaching its northern terminus at NY 41 and NY 206 in Coventry

NY 235 begins at an intersection with NY 7 alongside the Wylie Brook in Colesville. The route progresses northward, crossing under a railroad viaduct, crossing the county line out of Broome County into Chenango County. After crossing the county line, NY 235 enters the town of Afton, passing some residences and paralleling the aforementioned brook. The route remains mainly rural, winding northward through Afton, passing some homes near Davey-Mendenhall Road. Continuing brook-side, NY 235, entering the town of Coventry, intersects with Ives Road before crossing over Wiley Brook just north of it. Ives Road soon turns to the northwest, merging back into NY 235. The rural backdrop does not change along the roadway, crossing over Wiley Brook once more. Davey-Mendenhall Road merges in once again further north, where the route turns to the northwest, intersecting with County Route 30 (CR 30; Smith Road). The route makes a bend to the northeast, passing several farmlands, before entering downtown Coventry, where NY 235 intersects with NY 41 and NY 206. This intersection serves as the northern terminus of NY 235.[3]

HistoryEdit

The entirety of NY 235 was assigned as part of the 1930 renumbering of state highways in New York. At the time, it was routed on what is now Ives Road through the town of Coventry.[1] In the early 1930s, NY 235 was straightened out to use its current alignment as part of a total reconstruction of the 9-mile (14 km) route. Work on the route began c. 1932[4][5] and was completed by the following year.[6]
