THE IMPACT OF APPALACHIAN DEVELOPMENT HIGHWAYS

THE APPALACHIAN DEVELOPMENT HIGHWAY SYSTEM IS BASIC TO THE RENAISSANCE OF THE REGION. WHILE OTHER PROGRAMS ARE UNDER WAY TO DEVELOP THE AREA'S PEOPLE AND RESOURCES, A NETWORK OF HIGHWAYS AND ACCESS ROADS IS ESSENTIAL TO THE EFFICIENT MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE AND GOODS. THE PRELIMINARY RESULTS ARE PROMISING. MANY NEW INDUSTRIES HAVE LOCATED IN THE REGION - THE GREAT MAJORITY OF THEM NEAR THE NEW HIGHWAYS - AND EMPLOYMENT IS UP. FOR MANY TOWNS LOCATED ALONG THE HIGHWAYS, ECONOMIC REVIVAL HAS MEANT NEW CHALLENGES: TO PROVIDE THE FACILITIES AND SERVICES WHICH PEOPLE DEMAND IN A MODERN COMMUNITY. WHEN THE HIGHWAY SYSTEMS ARE COMPLETE, THE POTENTIAL ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL IMPACT WILL MULTIPLY.
