Kentucky Interstate Highways

Kentucky's Interstate Highways connect its major cities and facilitate travel between the Commonwealth of Kentucky and its neighbors.  I-24 passes through southwest Kentucky, while I-71 connects Louisville with southwestern Ohio.  I-64 traverses northern Kentucky from east to west.  I-65 traverses western Kentucky from south to north, between the Tennessee border and the Indiana border at Louisville.  I-75 crosses eastern Kentucky from south to north, between the Tennessee border and the Ohio border at Cincinnati.  Kentucky also maintains a network of intrastate parkways.

The state's auxiliary Interstate Highways include I-264 in Louisville, Kentucky's portion of the I-275 loop around Cincinnati, Ohio, and I-471, which links downtown Cincinnati with its southeastern suburbs and I-275.

Kentucky Scenic Routes

The 270-mile trip from Lexington to Hopkinsville via Routes 68 and 150 passes through some of the most scenic back-country of the state.  Visitors can tour Lexington's Ashland mansion, built by Henry Clay, and then travel west to the quaint Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.  Located in the "Pennyroyal" region, the Crystal Onyx Caves showcase rare onyx columns, and Mammoth Cave National Park is home to a cave that sparkles with white gypsum crystals.  Another stop not to be missed, the Jefferson Davis monument between Russellville and Hopkinsville offers sweeping views of the breathtaking countryside.  More information about scenic roads in Kentucky is available on this America's Byways: Kentucky page.
