Direct Access to Highway 60 & Interstate 44 Interchange
Principal to the community's rapid economic growth rate, numerous transportation networks directly feed the Republic area. Commuters and freight drivers alike can directly access the Highway 60 (James River Freeway) & Interstate 44 interchange and the Missouri Highway MM & Highway 60 interchange. Access to Highway 65 as well as Missouri Highway 13 is also within just a few miles. The access to multiple highways makes traveling to and from Republic's commercial and industrial core quite convenient. Each day, US Highway 60 alone brings more than 30,000 vehicles past the local Wal-Mart Supercenter & hundreds of acres already zoned for commercial and industrial properties.
