  • Kentucky gets high marks for highway system

    For most of Kentucky’s history, there were only two ways to get from one place to another: By horse or by boat. Even when railroads began reaching across the state in the 1830s, these methods of travel remained the backbone of our early transportation system.

    While rivers were essentially open to anyone, the same could not be said of our first roads, almost all of which were privately owned even well past the Civil War. Those wanting to use them could expect to pay a hefty price, too, since toll gates were built about five miles apart on average.
