The area is roughly 90 miles north of St. Louis, Missouri and 200 miles southwest of Chicago via Interstate 55 through Springfield, which serves as a major north-south corridor to Memphis TN (more than 300 miles) and Louisiana (roughly 700 miles).

From St. Louis there are highway links in many directions nationwide, such as Interstate 70 west to Kansas City and Denver, or Interstate 44 to Oklahoma and Dallas, Texas.  There are also good interstate routes to the east and southeast

Springfield is located along Interstate 72, which is the route from Quicy, Illinois on the west side of the state along the Mississippi River through Springfield to Decatur.  That continues as Interstate 74 from the Champaign-Urbana area to Indianapolis, Indiana and other eastern locations.
