The River Ridge Commerce Center provides easy access to major interstates, airports, riverports and railways from its location in the heart of the United States.
Access by Interstates
River Ridge is adjacent to the center of North America’s automobile universe, referred to as the Southern Auto Corridor. Interstate I-65 is considered the spine of the corridor and runs from Kentucky down through Alabama.
Companies at River Ridge enjoy easy access to major interstates, including I-265, I-71, I-64 and I-65. The commerce center is immediately adjacent to the recently constructed Lewis and Clark Bridge, which connects southern Indiana to the east end of Louisville, Kentucky
Access by River Ports
Indiana’s three ports in Burns Harbor, Mount Vernon and Jeffersonville are all connected by the Inland Waterway System via the Ohio, Mississippi and Illinois rivers and have year-round access to international ships through the ports in New Orleans. River Ridge sits adjacent to the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville with access to major North American freight transportation arteries.
The Ports of Indiana is a statewide port authority operating two ports on the Ohio River and one on Lake Michigan. Ideally situated on two major North American freight transportation arteries – the Great Lakes and the Inland Waterway System – the state’s three ports are located in Burns Harbor, Mt. Vernon and Jeffersonville.
The Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville, located across the river from Louisville, Kentucky, opened in 1985 and has been one of the fastest-growing ports on the Ohio River
