Transportation

 

Conroe is conveniently located on Interstate 45, only 40 miles north of Houston. Interstate 10 and an array of state highways and US highways serve this area. Dallas is 200 miles to the north, The Woodlands is only 10 minutes to the south, and Austin and San Antonio are both comfortable drives to the west. Plus, many of our local companies simply find a Central Time Zone location to be an advantage.

 

Private and Corporate pilots flying into Conroe will find a 6,000-foot by 150-foot primary runway with a full instrument approach system.  The airport also features an air traffic control tower, a 5,000 foot crosswind runway, GPS approaches and full aviation services at the Lone Star Executive Airport.  Located just 3 miles northeast of Conroe and 25 miles north of George Bush Intercontinental Airport, the airport is home to multiple businesses that provide all the services needed by business and pleasure flyers, including aircraft fueling, maintenance, avionics sales/repairs, flight training and charter and sales. Short term development plans for the airport include extending the primary runway to 7,500-feet and the construction of additional corporate hangars.

 


 
Commercial air travel is available only 30 miles to the south at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport Houston. Extensive domestic and international flights, provided by 20 passenger airlines, give access to approximately 185 destinations worldwide. All leading air-cargo and package-express carriers also are available.

 

Rail service is provided by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe for east/west shipping and by the Union Pacific Railway for materials going north or south. 

 

Shipping by sea is another possibility in Conroe. Conroe is located 45 miles north of the tenth largest tonnage port in the world, the Port of Houston. The Port of Houston is ranked first in the United States in foreign waterborne commerce and second in total tonnage. International trade is brought closer to home through Conroe's proximity to this world-class port.
