Transportation and Location

Ozark is nestled in the southeast corner of the state and is convenient to major metropolitan areas. Ozark and Dale County are accessible by highway, air and rail. U.S. Highway 231 runs through and joins other major interstate systems, including Alabama Highways 249, 123, 105 and 84.

Blackwell Airport has undergone major improvements, with the extension of the runway to 5,000 feet, a new fire suppression system and beacon light. A regional airport is located 15 minutes south in Dale County.

Of the U.S. population, 50 percent is within a 24-hour shipping distance. With infinite opportunity, imports and exports continue to rise to record numbers as international companies take advantage of the global market.

An hour-and-a-half drive south takes you to the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast. Seventy-five miles due north takes you to Montgomery, Alabama’s capitol city.
