The I-95 Corridor is the Main Street of the East Coast, and Fayetteville and Cumberland County are right in the middle.
That places our region’s businesses within a full day’s drive of three-fourths of the nation’s population — including Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Charleston, Atlanta and New Orleans — and close to the East Coast’s largest ports. In fact, the Ports of Wilmington, Morehead City, and Charleston are just hours away by truck. Closer to home, we’re a quick drive from all the educational and innovation resources of Raleigh and the Research Triangle.
You’ll also find abundant Class I rail from Norfolk Southern and CSX, as well as regional rail service from the Aberdeen, Carolina & Western. Fayetteville Regional Airport (FAY) has frequent service to Washington D.C., Charlotte, and Atlanta, with a 7,709-foot runway that accommodates even larger business and cargo jet traffic.
