The key element for the growth of US economy was that its expansion in trade towards the west. Baltimore was considered to be a great commercial place because it was connected to National Road. But transportation of freight through this road seems to be expensive and hence the need for another rail road was felt which paved way for the construction of Baltimore Ohio Road.
