Kentucky Roads - KY 8

KY 8

The end of KY 20 EB is just outside Cincinnati Airport, but all that traffic went onto I-275 anyway, so no one will notice if this white sign sticks around a bit longer. Courtesy Lou Corsaro.

Looking north from KY 8 east of the Bailey Bridge. The first photo concerns iron made in Kentucky, and the second is Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals. With a football stadium on the waterfront and several beautiful bridges, Cincinnati is much like Pittsburgh.

WB from Newport into Covington across Licking River.

All remaining photos on this page are westbound.

Just west of the Licking River, the state name shields disappear and an Allowed Cloud looms around loud noises at Ball's Row (or Bow?). I now have Licking and Ball's in the same sentence on this website.

KY 8 WB and US 27 SB along the Campbell County Courthouse. KY 8 then turns onto 4th St.

A pair of Interstates cross overhead: I-275 and then I-471.

KY 8 is the Mary Ingles Highway east of Covington, so there had to be a historic marker somewhere. I just wasn't expecting one so... natural.

Crossing Twelvemile Creek near the east end of KY 1566.

Just after KY 8 begins in South Portsmouth, the Carl Perkins Bridge is KY 8S (Spur, I suppose), Truck US 23 (bypassing downtown Portsmouth, OH), and then becomes OH 852 on the other side. There was not a lot of coordination on the numbering.
