Long County is supported by two U.S. routes (US 301 and US 84) and one State route (SR 57).
U.S. Route 301 (US 301) is a 170-mile-long (270 km) U.S. Highway in the U.S. state of Georgia. It travels south-to-north from the St. Marys River south-southeast of Folkston to the Savannah River north-northeast of Sylvania, via Jesup, Ludowici, Glennville, Claxton, Statesboro, and Sylvania.
U.S. Route 84 (US 84) is a 258-mile-long (415 km) U.S. Highway in the U.S. state of Georgia, is also signed as State Route 38 for its entire length in Georgia. After entering Georgia from Alabama west-northwest of Jakin, the highway travels through the southern portion of the state, meeting its eastern terminus at Interstate 95 (I-95) east of Midway. US 84 through Georgia is also known as the Wiregrass Georgia Parkway.
CSX Transportation - The Nahunta Subdivision is a railroad line owned by CSX Transportation in the U.S. states of Florida and Georgia. The line runs from Ogeechee, Georgia to Dinsmore, Florida for a total of 129.2 miles (207.9 km). At its north end it continues south from the Savannah Subdivision and at its south end it continues south as the Jacksonville Terminal Subdivision A-Line.
State Route 57 (SR 57) is a 178.5-mile-long (287.3 km) state highway that runs northwest to southeast through portions of Bibb, Jones, Twiggs, Wilkinson, Washington, Johnson, Emanuel, Candler, Tattnall, Long, and McIntosh counties in the central and southeastern parts of Georgia. The route connects the eastern part of the Macon area to the Eulonia area, via Swainsboro.
Coastal Georgia is supported by a highly efficient inter-modal transportation network that consists of two interstate highways (I-95 and I-16), two world-class ports (Port of Savannah and Port of Brunswick), two major rail carriers (CSX and Norfolk Southern), and one international airport (Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport). This impressive transportation corridor offers ready mobility for business and industry. This network continues to make promoting economic development throughout the 10-county region an easy task.
Interstate 95 bisects the region from the South Carolina border in the north to the Florida border in the south. This interstate is the primary north/south corridor between New York New York and Miami, Florida. Long County is 30 miles from Interstate 95 which gives quick, easy access for traveling north to Savannah or south to Brunswick and Jacksonville, FL.
Interstate 16 is the primary east/west connector for central Georgia, connecting Savannah in the east with Macon and access to Interstate 75, and Atlanta, in the west. Interstate 16 crosses Interstate 95 in Pooler, near the Port of Georgia facilities in Savannah, making the northern part of the region a prime location for industrial development dependent upon access to multi-modal transportation and infrastructure.
As stated above, Georgia’s accessible ports are a major advantage for the manufacturing and distribution companies located throughout the region. Savannah’s Mason Intermodal Container Transfer Facility enables a seamless transfer of shipping containers onto trains and shortens the ship-to-market transit time to its delivery area. Facilitating global trade through strategic U.S. East Coast gateways, the Georgia Ports Authority is a leader in the operation of modern terminals and in meeting the demands of international business. In addition, there are two major rail service providers, CSX and Norfolk Southern, in the region. Both offer piggyback service at Savannah and rail service at Brunswick.
The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport provides the region with access to international passenger and cargo air service. The terminal building was built in 1994. The airport is located strategically near the junction of Interstates 95 and 16, and the Savannah Ports.
