    Kentucky is surrounded by six major Interstate highways: I-24, I-64, I-65, I-69, I-71, and I-75

    Seven Parkways

    Six Bypasses

    Six Spurs: I-165, I-169, I-264, I-265, I-275, and I-471. 

    The parkways were originally toll roads, but it was ended by the state authority on November 22, 2006. The decision was shown with a positive economic development for transportation in Kentucky. In June 2007, a law was invoked raising the speed limit on rural portions of Kentucky Interstates and parkways from 65 to 70 miles per hour (105 to 113 km/h).

    Road tunnels include the interstate Cumberland Gap Tunnel and the rural Nada Tunnel.

I had a seamless first-time vehicle transport experience with Ship A Car, inc. I know that is largely because of Bob Moran, the coordinator who helped me. Personable, patient, professional, always willing to answer further questions, he gave me excellent customer service and I greatly appreciate it! I was so nervous and dreading getting started but Bob put me at ease and I quickly gained great confidence in the company because of his easy and knowledgeable communication. In addition, the driver dispatched to move my car from Los Angeles To St Petersburg, Florida was punctual, called when he was supposed to, prior to pickup/delivery, and made great time completing the transport. He picked up Monday around 2 pm and delivered at 9 am on that Friday. I have nothing but praise for Ship A Car, Inc. and enthusiastically recommend them!
