Comment[edit]

US 62 changes from a NS route to a EW route at the OH-PA border, but this isn't mentioned in the article. 150.134.70.238 22:01, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm familiar with US 62 as it runs throughout Kentucky. It is a very scenic byway that basically runs through the middle of the state. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.207.169.60 (talk) 19:21, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Expansion of descriptions needed[edit]

I started working on rewriting and linking some of the current material; however, this article needs work. I found the route descriptions in the individual states were mixed up, some going west to east while others were written for east to west. Vbofficial 13:11, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Inaccurate statement[edit]

"Kentucky and Missouri are the only two states of the contiguous forty-eight to share a boundary with no road (only a single ferry) directly connecting the two states."

I was going to change this to read "share a land or river boundary," because it's not true otherwise; Michigan and Minnesota share a border (in Lake Superior) and New York and Rhode Island share a border (in Block Island Sound). In both cases, they too obviously have no road connection, although both also have ferries. However, that change would also be problematic and inaccurate. There actually are direct road connections between Missouri and Kentucky, technically; there are two pieces of land on the west bank of the Mississippi which belong to Kentucky due to changes in the river's routing, and there are roads which cross the Missouri/Kentucky border in one of those places, directly across from Columbus, KY. (You can't get from Kentucky to Kentucky there without going through Missouri, however.) Obviously the current text cannot remain as is, so my inclination is to just delete. Any better ideas?

  • I have to agree with the above, the statement is just plain wrong (Wolf Island Rd, and a pair of unnamed-on-Google-maps streets near Crosno cross the state line due to the way the river has changed over time), and furthermore, WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH US Route 62? Why is it Route 62's fault that there is no "major" connection between the two states, as opposed to, say, US 60, US 51, or I-57, which also run very close to Fort Defiance, IL (at the triple-point between IL, MO and KY). Axe it. 75.84.10.82 (talk) 06:15, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
