Overview

Equidistant to both coasts, Oklahoma County is the center of the I-35 corridor, the nation’s leading transportation hub. This includes major interstates (I-35, I-40, I-44), Will Rogers Airport, rail access (BNSF & U.P.) and proximity to 5 military installations in Oklahoma. The I-35 Corridor is a mega-region of metro areas in the South Central U.S., extending from the Mexico border to Kansas City, Missouri along I-35. Access cities include Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, San Antonio and Wichita. 

With a combined population of over 15 million residents, the I-35 Corridor contains seven of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. and is one of the fastest growing mega- regions in North America. 

With a reach of over 80 million people within a 500 mile radius, and being equidistant between New York City and Los Angeles, Mexico City and Toronto, Oklahoma makes it easy for companies to do business nationwide.
