Jefferson County, Illinois: a great, central location with
extensive resources for business

Jefferson County, Illinois offers an excellent environment for doing business, thanks to a central, well-connected location and a wide range of resources created to help companies grow and succeed.

We’re at the intersection of Interstates 57 and 64 (and a short drive from I-70), which means your company is within an eight-hour truck drive of more than 133 million consumers. Through our transload facility, businesses have access to BNSF, Canadian National, Evansville Western, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific, and CSX. And Mt. Vernon Outland Airport (KMVN) accommodates aircraft as large as 757s with a 6,500×150-foot ILS-equipped runway.

In addition, that transportation network means more than 639,000 workers live within an hour of local companies. We keep the workforce pipeline strong with employer-focused high school and postsecondary programs in the areas that are most valuable to employers.

Our communities offer plenty of sites as large as 450 acres and existing buildings up to 50,000 square feet. No matter which site you choose, your company will appreciate remarkably affordable water, wastewater, electricity, natural gas, and broadband.
