The Central Texas highway system provides clean and direct routes from the capital city to surrounding areas and destinations across the state and beyond. Interstate 35, U.S. Highway 183, and U.S. Highway 290 make for direct commuting through and around Austin. Thousands of motorists take advantage of the region’s new north-south and eastwest corridors created by State Highways 130 and 45. Austin’s highway system is favorable for materials distribution and business travel. Distribution takes advantage of the region’s location in Central Texas at the intersection of I-35 (the NAFTA corridor) and a network of U.S. and state highways. Three of the nation’s ten largest cities—Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas—are no more than three hours away. Laredo, the major port of entry between the U.S. and Mexico, is four hours from Austin via I-35.
