Selma is located 45 miles west of Montgomery, Alabama’s state capital. U.S. Highway 80, a modern four-lane corridor, connects Selma with I-65 and I-85 to the east and with I-20 and I-59 to the west. The interstate network provides direct access to such major cities as New Orleans, Dallas, Chicago and Atlanta. U.S. Highway 231 connects easily with points south in Florida and with I-10, which spans the coastal United States.
Just 40 minutes from Selma, at the junction of U.S. Highway 80 and I-65, is the Montgomery Regional Airport, which is served by the Delta Connection and other airlines that connect easily with hubs in Atlanta, Dallas, Nashville, Memphis and Charlotte.
Selma’s general aviation airport, located in the Craig Industrial Complex, can accommodate corporate jets with its 8,000-foot runway with 1,000-foot over-runs on each end and full instrument landing system. Excellent industrial sites are available adjacent to the airport runway and taxiways.
Our location on the Alabama River gives exceptional access to waterways. One of 10 cities in Alabama’s State Inland Docks system, Selma gives barge traffic access to the Gulf of Mexico just 250 miles down the river at the Port of Mobile. The Alabama River also connects with the Tombigbee River, whose Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway provides a link to some 16,000 miles of waterways throughout Mid-America.
Selma and Dallas County are served by two railroads, M & B Railroad and Norfolk Southern Railway, which link the southeastern United States. Many of our industrial sites already have connecting spurs in place.
