Infrastructure

The Golden Triangle encompasses three communities with ongoing infrastructure development and improvement.

A multi-modal destination, the region boasts heavy-duty water, rail, road and air methods for product and source movement.

The Golden Triangle Regional Airport is Mississippi’s third largest commercial airport with three inbound and outbound flights daily to Atlanta.

From Columbus, Starkville and West Point, local highways connect to I-20, I-22 Corridor and I-55.

Three ports located on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway provide direct access to the Port of Mobile to the South and Ohio River Valley to the North.

Three industrial parks located in Columbus and West Point are served by Kansas City Southern Railway’s connectivity to the East and West Coasts, Canada and Mexico.

The region boasts three Tennessee Valley Authority-certified megasites, two-shovel-ready industrial parks in Clay and Lowndes counties and one new park under development in Oktibbeha County. The Golden Triangle has the most robust and redundant power in North Mississippi.

Each industrial park possess infrastructure to supply sufficient water and wastewater capacity to most industrial projects.

  • The big decision for Airbus Helicopters, Inc., to come to Columbus was low tax base, the land was not expensive, you have a very talented pool of employees to pick from and the State of MS was very accommodating on us coming here. Several Industries have followed us and they’ve all been successful.
