A robust network of highways, railroads, and air services

Jackson County, Ohio makes it easier for companies to access raw materials and deliver their products to customers, thanks to a robust infrastructure of highways and railroads that connect to communities within Ohio and beyond. For example, U.S. 35 and State Route 32 are both Interstate-quality divided highways with quick connections to the nation’s Interstate network. That puts key markets such as Huntington and Charleston, West Virginia and Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati, Ohio just a short drive away. More importantly, it puts 140 million North American consumers within a one-day truck drive. If your company supplies manufacturers throughout the nation’s manufacturing belt, you’ll appreciate fast, reliable access.

If your company is a rail user, the Ohio South Central Railroad provides responsive, regular service across 64 miles of track, with a connection to the CSX mainline at Richmond Dale, providing easy access to deep-water ports along the East Coast.

Air transportation is within easy reach, too. Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport just outside Cincinnati, are both just a short drive away. Our own James A. Rhodes Airport (I43), just outside Jackson offers a 5,200-foot runway with instrument approach procedures and jet fuel facilities.
