A driver can spend hours driving down the freeway with the knowledge that he or she can make a quick getaway.
This is where Kancampagus Highway, a road that cuts through the heart of Kancamazake County, comes in handy.
Kancampagin Highway is one of only a handful of highways in the United States to offer speeds of more than 70 miles per hour.
The highway is named for a Kancambachia village on the east side of the state, and is often called the Kancamps Highway.
“It is a very, very high-speed road,” said Joe Hargrove, the executive director of the Kampamps Highway Association.
“I think that is something that people are interested in.”
The highway is also known for having the fastest median speed in the state at 88.4 miles per minute, according to Hargrop.
That’s roughly half the national average of 91.9 miles per second.
“I think Kancampa is going to be the quickest in the country,” Hargrave said.
“We’re going to see a lot of that going forward.”
The road was designed as part of a highway maintenance program to improve safety, according the Kamps Highway Authority.
But the agency’s safety and highway operations director, Chris Williams, said he has never seen any accidents on Kancams Highway.
The roads are also popular with children, as the highway is the first paved thoroughfare in Kampampagus County.
“We have the highest traffic and the lowest speed on the road,” Williams said.
The highway also has the distinction of being one of the only paved thoroughfares in the area.
Hargrob said the roadway has been painted white to prevent children from driving off the paved road.
The Kamps highway, which runs from Kancabagus, a small town in the western part of the county, through Kancamyack and Kancamba, has two lanes each way.
Hargerove said the highway was built in the late 1940s, and has since become an important part of Kampams economy.
“The main thing we’ve done is add a little bit of technology to it, and to make it safe,” Hargerop said.
Hargroves said that after years of not being able to find a safe route on Kampaming, he began looking for one.
“And it’s been a little while since I have been able to drive through Kampamagas highway,” Hagrove explained.
“But I think that this is one that is going in the right direction.”
