The Valley’s transportation system thrives as it is home to regional airports, major interstates and reliable rail.
The area is in close proximity to I-80, I-81 and I-83 as well as U.S. Routes 11-15 and Route 522. The local airport is located in the heart of the region and the Harrisburg International Airport is less than an hour away from most Valley residences and businesses. The area offers two reliable short lines through Canadian Pacific Railroad and Norfolk Southern, which many businesses take advantage of, and two major ports – Baltimore and Philadelphia – are only three hours away.
