Location & Transportation

San Angelo is located in the ranch country of West Texas along the Ports-to-Plains trade corridor which connects America’s energy and agricultural heartlands.


Highway Transportation
San Angelo is served by three U.S. Highways: 67, 87, and 277. Located between Interstate Highways 10 and 20, San Angelo is 1 hour and 1 ½ hours respectively from each.

Current highway improvement projects are underway to connect the Interstate Highways. The Ports to Plains corridor is comprised of State Highway 277 and Highway 87 and is the main North-South transportation corridor through west-central Texas. The entire corridor contains almost 5,000 miles of transportation roadway and touches over 275 communities.


Rail Transportation
San Angelo is home to the corporate offices of Texas-Pacifico Transportation, Ltd., the operator of the 390 mile short line railroad that connects to the major railroads at its east end (including BNSF and the KCS and UP by way of the FWWR), interchanges with the UP at Alpine, and connects to the Mexican railroad network at its west end at Presidio, Texas/Ojinaga, Chihuahua. The railroad currently serves customers in the communities of Ballinger, Miles, Harriet, San Angelo, Mertzon, Barnhart, Big Lake, Rankin, McCamey, Sulphur Junction, Fort Stockton and Alpine. Main commodities moving on the TXPF include frac sand, crude oil, grain, and steel.

The Presidio-Ojinaga International Bridge is set to reopen in September 2019, reopening an important gateway that will expedite freight movement between the Dallas/Fort Worth area and north central Mexico and its Pacific coast ports.
