Image Caption: STS062-091-093 Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.A. March 1994
As part of the border between Indiana and Kentucky, the southwest-flowing Ohio River separates New Albany, Indiana (to the north), and Louisville, Kentucky (to the south). Two concentric beltways loop around the south side of Louisville--Interstate Highway 264, the inner belt, and Interstate Highway 265, the outer belt. Louisville developed as a major urban area as a result of Ohio River waterfalls. Goods shipped via the river had to be unloaded before reaching the falls and carried around the falls, thereby creating a need for workers and services. Today ships use locks to navigate the barrier. The dark features throughout the photograph are areas of hilly, eroded, wooded terrain.
