Great River Road

The Great River Road is a collection of state, provincial, federal and local road which follow the course of the Mississippi River through ten U. S states and one Canadian province. They are Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Ontario. Developed in 1938, the road has a separate commission in each state and province. These in turn cooperate through the Mississippi River Parkway Commission (MRPC). The 2,340 miles are designated with a green and white sign showing a river steamboat inside a spoked wheel with the name of the state or province. The over-all logo reads "Canada to Gulf" where the local name would be.
