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,
Michigan. The major cities that I-75 connects to includes (from south to north)
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
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,
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.
