While Huntley claims an excellent roadway network, we are part of something more. Illinois lies at the heart of the nation's interstate highway system. Three coast-to-coast interstates (I-70, I-80, and I-90) pass through Illinois. These are joined by major north-south interstates, including I-39, I-55, and I-57; major east-west interstates that include I-24, I-64, and I-74; as well as I-72, I-94, I-88 and I-155. In all, 2,169 miles of interstate highway serve Illinois. Only two states have more interstate miles.
In addition to air access at O’Hare and Midway Airports, private air service is also available at the Lake in the Hills Airport.
Chicago is the largest rail hub in the country with more than 1,200 trains passing through it daily carrying 75 percent of the nation's freight valued at $350 billion; 37,500 rail freight cars pass through the City every day projected to increase to 67,000 by 2020. Chicago is the only city where six Class I railroads converge and exchange freight (BNSF, Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, CSX, Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific).
