The business and culture hub of the Inland Northwest, Spokane County is well-connected within the state and the rest of the United States. Major roadways include Interstate 90; U.S. routes 2, 195 and 395; and state routes 27, 206, 290, 291, 902 and 904. The new North Spokane Corridor connects U.S. highways 2 and 395 and, once complete, will be a major corridor for freight transport between Spokane and Canada.
Area businesses are also supported with rail service by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe, which has its main office in Spokane, and the Union Pacific/Southern Pacific. Both rail services ship nationally out of a switching yard in Spokane Valley.
For those arriving by air, Spokane International Airport is one of Washington’s major airports, located 10 miles east of Fairchild Air Force Base. From the airport, there are a number of options (shuttle, car rental or public transportation) to get you around Spokane County.
