Transportation

America’s free, national interstate highway network connects South Western Kentucky with every corner of the country. Most major U.S. cities are within a day’s drive for trucks, and there are hundreds of trucking firms to choose from. The local interstate hub is I-24, which runs through the heart of our three county region.

 

For rail service, South Western Kentucky has mainline service from CSX International. More than thirty cargo trains pass through our community daily, with stops at two separate terminals. If you prefer intermodal service to save money (rail + truck), there is a CSX Intermodal terminal one hour away in Nashville, Tennessee.

 

For air service, the Nashville International Airport offers commercial and cargo flights to destinations across the globe. In our region, there are two local airports, with one being the Hopkinsville – Christian County Airport.  It is well equipped with a 5,500-foot runway, IFR guidance and fuel trucks. Self-serve jet and avgas fuel is also available. The Smith D. Broadbent Airport located in Cadiz-Trigg County provides a 4,800 runway.
