If you’re over 50, you probably tossed dimes and quarters into toll booths on the way to Mammoth Cave or grandma’s. Those booths along Kentucky’s parkways are gone, but the network (mostly now interstate-quality) still connects us.
Kentucky was a can-do, national leader in road building in the 1960s. Leaders knew major routes would grow companies, jobs and communities, so we all pitched in.
Today, we have transportation challenges from Henderson to Covington to Prestonsburg. Without spending more money (taxes and/or tolls), we can’t have more roads and bridges. Kentucky Infrastructure Coalition is on the right path.
