It is, simply put, the Winner’s Circle – the 120-mile radius with Winona-Montgomery County at its center, providing fast easy access to the entire region, from Memphis, TN, to Jackson, MS; from Mississippi’s Golden Triangle to Oxford to the Delta. And the Winner’s Circle doesn’t just promise proximity, it also means cross-roads connections in a strategic convergence of interstate and U.S. highways, rail, and air, promising coast-to-coast, cost-effective reach from Mexico to Canada.


Winona-Montgomery County highway connections include:

 I-55 – The north-south artery connecting the Gulf of Mexico with the Great Lakes, I-55 crosses six states, providing critical heartland market penetration and yielding easy access to Jackson, Mississippi; Memphis; and St. Louis. A dozen Interstate junctions, including I-10, I-20, I-40, and I-90, ensure coast-to-coast omni-directional highway coverage.

U.S. 51 – The historic and legendary highway route that goes far, extending 1200 miles from New Orleans to the Wisconsin-Michigan border, U.S. 51 also goes “way back,” memorialized by blues and rock singers for generations. Today, it’s one of the multiple reasons industry sings the praises of transportation assets in Winona-Montgomery County.

U.S. 82 – As an east-west route starting at White Sands, New Mexico, and terminating in Brunswick, GA, U.S. 82 offers access to the Port of Brunswick, the second busiest ro-ro port in the nation, which also offers breakbulk and agri-bulk services.


Now owned and operated by RailUSA, the Grenada Railroad has a rich history that includes the legendary Casey Jones and famed passenger trains such as the City of New Orleans and the Panama Limited. Today, the line connects industry to the superior Class I service of Illinois Central Railway – now owned by Canadian Railway (CN) – which extends from Chicago through Memphis to New Orleans, where the Port of New Orleans provides deep-water service as the nation’s fourth largest port in cargo volume.


Just one mile south of Winona’s central business district, the Winona-Montgomery County Airport is an exceptionally comfortable and convenient asset for corporate travel, with a 4,000-foot runway, ground transportation, and in-flight catering. Corporate aircraft are maintained in peak condition through the extensive and expert services of Heath Aviation, the airport’s FBO and an FAA Part 145 certified repair station specializing in avionics work, carrying the latest technology for a broad range of aircraft. Also located just over an hour away are municipal airports in Columbus and Greenville, and within an easy hour-and-a-half drive the Jackson-Evers International Airport offers service by Delta, American, United, and Southern Express Air.
