Springfield is near the nation’s geographic and population centers with major thoroughfares including Interstate 44, U.S. 65, U.S 60, U.S. 160, and Missouri 13 all leading directly into the city.

Transportation has long been a focus of the Springfield community, beginning with its heritage as a central railroad hub and the birthplace of historic Route 66. Today, a well-maintained infrastructure, cutting-edge traffic systems, and state-of-the-art airport facilities continue the tradition, keeping Springfield in motion.


Springfield’s centrally located airport makes arriving from out of town easy.
