Despite its relatively small size (24,000 square miles), the Mountain State is home to over 3,000 communities; approximately 450 of those are incorporated cities and towns. To link them (and to provide an important part of the transportation of the state’s abundant natural resources), there are some 39,000 miles of public roads, of which the State of WV maintains 35,000 miles (90%) of those roads. Included amongst these roads are 468 miles of Interstate Routes, 88 miles of the WV Turnpike, 835 miles of Federal Roadways, and 7,000 bridges (most less than 100 feet in length).
