This is a portion of the main map covering Louisville, Lexington, and Cincinnati. Many bridges that cross the Ohio River today did not exist at the time, such as the Mauckport/Brandenburg bridge, and the K&I Toll Bridge was open to traffic, carrying US 31W and 150. KY 53, today one of two major ways to get to Shelbyville from I-64, is not shown on this map at all.

This is the Louisville inset from AAA's 1954 Southeastern States map. All of the insets in this map, including this one, were black-and-white.

Completed portions of the Watterson Expressway were signed as KY 738 at one time, before the Watterson between Dixie and Shelbyville Road became US 60.

This map also illustrates one snapshot in the constantly changing evolution of US 60 throughout the 20th century. Around 1954, US 60 split into a Business route and a Bypass. The Business US 60 tok Dixie Highway to Broadway to Baxter to Grinstead to Lexington Road. The bypass took Berry, Taylor, Eastern Parkway, Willow, and Cherokee Pkwy, which is now signed as Alternate US 60. US 60 (the remainder of current Alternate US 60) continued down Grinstead to Shelbyville Road. Grinstead between Baxter and Cherokee Pkwy is now ``secret'' route KY 2860.
