Highways to New Markets ~
Increased economic activity associated with the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS) has helped create or support over 168,000 jobs across Appalachia’s 13 states, with nearly $7.3 billion of added worker income annually, according to a new study. The ADHS is a network of 32 distinct highway corridors totaling 3,090 miles and connecting the 13 Appalachian states with other interstate highways.

This just-released study, Economic Analysis of Completing the Appalachian Development High System, describes the effects the ADHS’ development has had in connecting Appalachian people and businesses to economic markets, and its impacts on the Region’s economy. (Source: ARC)
