Description:
The original idea for wooden Plank Roads came from Russia to Canada in the 1830’s and became, for a short time, a popular method of road construction spreading, in the 1840’s, to the US. Some disappeared, others are now just trails, many became paved roads but in many cases the name stuck and you can still find signs to indicate that the road was once a "Plank Road"
