 New River Bridge

The rough topography and challenging transportation options of central Appalachia have traditionally isolated farmers from outside markets. A modern highway system and bridges such as the New River Gorge Bridge in southern West Virginia have made it possible for agricultural commodities to be transported efficiently to markets outside the region. AFSRC scientists are working to help farmers take advantage of potential new market options.
