Transportation

Land and air transportation are favorable for materials distribution in Kilgore. We are located on Interstate 20 and Highways 259/59.  I-20 is a major east–west Interstate Highway in the Southern United States. I‑20 intersects seven of the 10 primary north–south Interstates and also the east-west Interstates 10 and 30.  U.S. route 259 is a north–south spur of U.S. Route 59, a north–south United States highway that is a border-to-border route, part of NAFTA Corridor Highway System.
 
The East Texas Regional Airport is within a five minute drive and holds the distinction of being the first civilian airport in the State and the Southwest to have a 10,000-foot runway.  
 
The Port of Shreveport-Bossier is just 69 miles east on the Red River Waterway. 
 

American Electric Power - SWEPCO

In addition to low, regulated, rates AEP/SWEPCO currently has an Experimental Economic Development Rider (EDR) available that can benefit companies in Kilgore.  This EDR tariff helps discount the “demand portion” of an electric bill and extends for a three-year time span.  The minimum requirements are new electric use of 1,000 kW plus new jobs. This incentive will help keep electric costs even lower for a three-year time span.
