The road follows the river through ten states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. National designation allowed the Commonwealth of Kentucky to join the other nine Mississippi River states in developing a single continuous route with a common strategy for marketing and management.
By jointly developing the corridor’s intrinsic resources and coordinating the experiences of tourists, Kentucky can leverage the federal government’s investment in the Great River Road to the advantage of a region in need of economic growth, community development, and environmental conservation.
