Jackson County is literally the “crossroads of Southern Ohio.” Serving as the intersection of U.S. 35 and State Route 32, Jackson County is one of the few locations that can boast of four lane highways going entirely throughout the county in all four cardinal directions – north, south, east, and west.

U.S. 35 is a major northwest/southeast corridor that is heavily utilized by the trucking industry, and became completely four-lane from Dayton, Ohio to Gallipolis, Ohio in 2004 with construction underway that once completed will make U.S. completely four-lane from Dayton, Ohio to Charleston, West Virginia (I-64).

The city of Jackson, the county seat is located 75 miles south of the state capitol of Columbus, 100 miles east of Cincinnati and just over 30 miles northwest of the Ohio River at Gallipolis.

Jackson County is also within two hours of seven major interstate highways, Interstates 71, 74, and 75 to the west, plus 77 and 79, both to the east, are all north-south routes while Interstate 64 to the south and 70 to the north are primary east-west corridors in the midwestern United States.

Jackson County is less than 50 miles away from two Ohio River ports – the Jay Hall, Jr. Wharf in Gallipolis, Ohio and the McGovney River Terminal in Portsmouth, Ohio. The McGovney River Terminal features two surface rail tracks that connect with the Norfolk & Western Railway.
