Everything You Need to Know About the City of Meads Kentucky

Meads is an unincorporated network in Boyd County, Kentucky, United States. It is situated along the U.S. Interstate 60 passageway south of Ashland. 

Meads is fixated on the intersection of U.S. Highway 60, Kentucky Route 538, and Meade-Springer Road. It was named for the long-closed Mead’s station, a train station, and a general store located on the C&O(now CSX) railroad that still runs through the community. Almost no in the event that anything survives from the first network other than the railroad and a couple of homes. With the overhauling of the U.S. 60 started in the mid-1970s, new development started to occur at Meads, as it was reawakened as a suburb of Ashland. In 1974 a huge subdivision named Rockdale was created on the slopes above Meads, with a few hundred tract homes. In 1991, Mead Station Plaza was developed with more than 20 business units and serves the close by networks along U.S. 60. A few other business units have gone with the same pattern as of late. Meads is a piece of the Huntington-Ashland Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). As of the 2010 statistics, the MSA had a population of 287,702. New definitions from February 28, 2013, set the population at 363,000.
