Highways, Interstates and Rail

Getting More Goods to More Markets

Goods flow through Allegany County on a daily basis. Whether connecting at CSX's Cumberland Terminal Subdivision via container coming from the Ports of Baltimore or Norfolk, or traveling westward via I-68, Allegany County has always been a center of logistics and commerce. Mule-pulled canal boats made way for an intricate highway system. Rail lines still intersect the county, and many local manufacturers benefit from having dedicated spurs on-site. With continued state and federal investment in our roads and bridges, Allegany County offers competitive and comprehensive transport infrastructure to help you get your product on shelves, faster.


Highway and Interstate

CSX operates the Cumberland Terminal Subdivision and has multiple lines snaking through the county. The terminal connects to multiple subdivisions to the north, east and west.



Originally built to serve local plant executives visiting via corporate jet, the Greater Cumberland Regional Airport is now a vital link for passenger flights in our region.
