In about a week we will be traveling from central Virginia to Purdue in West Lafayette, IN. Weíve done the trip many times so know our regular route. Itís almost 700 miles so I refuse to do it in a day so you donít have to give me that warning! What Iím after is any knowledge of the alternate routes just for variety.
We usually take I-64 through West Virginia to US 35 west in Ohio to I-75 north and I-70 west to Indy then I-65 north.
Iím looking at either Ky AA Rt 9 West across Kentucky to Cincinnati then go up from there but I also notice US 52 runs right along the Ohio River in Ohio from the Huntington WV area to Cincinnati. Does any one know how these two roads, KY 9 and US 52 compare through this area? We once took KY 9 back to VA and I remember it as a two lane road. What about US 52?
I know there are connections, etc in there that I havenít detailed. Iím just now looking to see if thereís another road that could be interesting since the trip will be over night. Iím not looking at going further north and taking I-70 across Ohio. Been there, done that. Thanks.
