KIEDA Supports Economic Growth Within Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor

Kentucky I-71 Economic Development Alliance (KIEDA) is a regional economic partnership servicing Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham and Owen Counties in Kentucky. Our alliance was formed to promote economic growth through the attraction of new business and by supporting current ones. We are committed to promoting improvements in infrastructure, employment opportunities, education, and workforce development that will lead to a better quality of life for those that call our region home.

KIEDA’s successes include the widening of I-71, bringing in a community college and the development of shovel-ready product. 

As a region, our strength lies in our location, the diversity of our counties and our people. Each county is unique, has its own strengths and opportunities, but together we create a region of unmatched potential. 

The Right Location

Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor is strategically situated between Louisville and Cincinnati. We are just 45-minutes from these growing urban centers and the massive investments being made in distribution and logistics facilities serving the entire region. We have access to their workforce and educational institutions as well. The advantage we have over these larger cities is that it’s more affordable to do business here. Property costs and utilities are lower and so is the cost of our workforce. That’s one reason why we are the New Steel Capital of the United States. Companies like Nucor are investing billions in growing their operations within Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor and this creates opportunities for companies like yours. 

Anyone interested in investing within the region should contact KIEDA to discover how easy it is to do business in the I-71 Corridor - where Louisville and Cincinnati meet.
