Congestion along I-70

Traffic conditions and congestion are increasingly important factors in locating distribution centers. If vehicles can’t move, goods can’t move — regardless of location or network configuration. The Dayton Region contains the valuable I-70/75 trade corridor. Despite its adjacency to major metro areas and population centers in every direction, this corridor was not among the list of Top 100 Corridors for Congestion. As of May 2012, Dayton ranked 66th out of 102 cities analyzed by the Texas Transportation Institute. The National Strategy to Reduce Congestion (Corridors of the Future) report focusing on I-70, found that Indianapolis and Columbus are expected to have heavy congestion by 2030 to 2035. Dayton, meanwhile, is expected to stay relatively congestion free. The Dayton Region offers logistics firms an optimal location for distribution centers. More importantly, however, the Dayton Region will continue providing the infrastructure required to support distribution centers into the future.
