HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE

We are situated at the crossroads of several major highways and interstates, six of which converge in Topeka, providing easy access to on and off ramps and to all points in the city. Also, I-70 is the only interstate highway traveling from Topeka west into Colorado. Due to a $2.6 billion comprehensive transportation program, Kansas roads are ranked 4th in the nation in quality. These interstate connections have drawn more than 20 inter-and intrastate carriers to the area.

Rail service is provided by two carriers – Union Pacific, and BNSF Railway. A variety of specialized equipment and services is offered by all carriers. Piggyback service is available within a 60-mile radius.
