Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor: Where Louisville and Cincinnati meet
The I-71 Corridor is the New Raw Steel Capital of the United States with companies like North American Stainless and Nucor investing billions in their operations and logistics. Being located in the corridor connecting Louisville and Cincinnati – two of the nation’s largest transportation and distribution hubs, makes it easy to transport raw steel throughout the United States. Amazon, DHL and UPS have also invested heavily in the region due to the access it offers along with the region’s low tax rate, large skilled workforce, affordable sites and development-friendly local governments.
Within this thriving region lies the counties of Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham, Trimble and Owen – all part of the Kentucky I-71 Economic Development Alliance (KIEDA). KIEDA is a regional economic development partnership created to attract additional investment, companies and jobs. KIEDA also plays a role in promoting infrastructure projects and enhancing workforce and quality of life programs within the region. Businesses, site selectors and developers are encouraged to contact KIEDA to learn more about the benefits of locating within Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor.
