Dry Ridge is a home-rule-class city in Grant county in the state of Kentucky. The population was 2,191 at the 2010 census, up from 1,995 as of the 2000 census. While Dry Ridge is not the county seat, the city just south of Dry Ridge which is Williamstown is the county seat of Grant County.
When Grant County was formed in 1820, William Arnold offered land for the county seat. Arnold was a veteran of the Revolutionary War and settled in the area in 1795. The town of Williamstown was built there was named after him when it incorporated in 1825.
The county grew slowly, reaching a population of just 281 by 1870. The Cincinnati Southern Railway was built through the county in 1877, and Williamstown Lake was created in 1957. Finally, Interstate 75 was built in the 1960s. From around 1910 to 1960, the county’s economy was dominated by business related to its mineral water wells, which were supposed to have healing properties.
Major Traffic Arteries
Interstate 75 (I-75) is a major Interstate Highway in the Great Lakes and Southeastern regions of the United States. As with most Interstates that end in a five, it is a major cross-country, north–south route, one of the longest in the U.S., from southern Florida to the northern tip of Michigan. I-75 is the seventh longest Interstate Highway, the second longest north-south after I-95, and passes through six different states: Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan. The major cities that I-75 connects to includes (from south to north) Tampa, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Detroit.
I-75 continues northbound through the hilly, rugged terrain of the Cumberland Plateau region of Kentucky passing through London and Richmond, eventually reaching Lexington, where it briefly runs concurrently with I-64 before splitting off for Cincinnati, Ohio. Near Walton, I-71 merges with I-75, making for yet another overlapped portion of freeway. I-275, which is the Cincinnati beltway, is then intersected by I-71/I-75. After passing through Covington, the freeway crosses the Ohio River via the lower level of the Brent Spence Bridge (while the southbound direction uses the upper level) and continues into Cincinnati.
Dixie Highway; which is also known as U.S. Route 25 (US 25), is a north–south United States highway that runs for 750 miles from Brunswick, Georgia, to the Ohio state line in Covington, Kentucky. US 25 starts again in North Corbin and traverses north, in parallel with I-75, connecting the cities of London, Berea, Richmond, Lexington and Dry Ridge. US 25 ends in Covington at the Ohio state line over the Ohio River along Clay Wade Bailey Bridge; US 42/US 127 continue into Cincinnati.
