Kansas has a world-class network of public roads and state and interstate highways totaling more than 140,000 miles. Our network of quality highways and our central location in the continental U.S. has turned Kansas into a central trucking hub. Our public roads and state highways provide a route for businesses within our communities to reach interstate highways with minimal interruptions. Our interstates allow convenient access to local, national and global markets. The 1,500 miles of I-35 and I-29 create the only central interstate highway corridor linking the three countries of North America. It’s no secret that some of the nation’s leading trucking lines have major facilities in Kansas. Trucks can quickly and efficiently reach international ports on either coast, Canadian and Mexican trade partners to the north and south and any markets that fall in-between. Major trade corridors with routes through Kansas include: I-70, spanning the country coast-to-coast from Utah to Maryland. I-135 and U.S. 81, establishing a route between Texas and North Dakota. I-29, creating a route from Kansas City to the Canadian border. U.S. 400, providing access to I-35, I-135, U.S. 81 and I-44. U.S. 69, traversing from Minnesota to Texas.
