The Jacksonville Region has exceptional roadway access to the east, north and south via its frontage on I-72 and proximity to I-55 (less than 30 miles). From this location, suppliers and consumers in St. Louis are only 90 minutes away and those in Chicago are within a four hour drive.
And even this will be shortened when the ongoing U.S. Route 67 expansion from the Quad Cities to St. Louis is completed. If a proposed expansion of Missouri’s U.S. Route 36 connecting to I-72 becomes a reality, the Jacksonville Region will be squarely in the distribution center west through Missouri and east through Indiana. A total of 24 Interstate and eight Intrastate motor freight carriers operate out of the Jacksonville Region, which is also served by three motor freight terminals.
