The I-74 Corridor is 80 miles of opportunity where businesses can reach huge consumer markets – more than 115 million – with easy access to I-74 and its connections to interstates in all directions. Nearby FedEx and DHL hubs and a CSX mainline railroad that connects to deep water ports on the East Coast can expand their reach to markets almost anywhere in the world.
The I-74 Corridor offers a nearly unlimited supply of clean water and affordable electricity and gas – enough to meet even the most demanding needs. It’s also easy to get plugged in here with high-speed networks fully capable of meeting and exceeding the needs of most any business.
Businesses in the I-74 Corridor have no problems finding the talent they need with a regional workforce of more than three million. And, they’re well-prepared, too.
Our communities have been working to create a straight-line connection between our schools and companies throughout the region to provide a steady supply of well-qualified workers with high-demand skills. High school students and adult learners alike take advantage of technical training at several regional training centers including and through Ivy Tech Community College.
With more than 6,000 acres and 50 buildings available, there’s plenty of room to start and grow a business of any type or size here within the I-74 Corridor. Companies choosing to build from the ground up will find Certified Shovel-Ready sites in several of our business parks which will greatly reduce the time spent on due diligence.
