Completed in 2016, the nation’s newest interstate highway I-22 is helping to drive new commercial and industrial investment into Walker County. Thanks to a central location within 250 miles of 11 major automotive manufacturing facilities, the county is now home to several global tier one automotive suppliers, including Yorozu Automotive Alabama, HTNA, Nitto Denko and Vistech Manufacturing. In addition to interstate access, Walker County and the City of Jasper also provide direct access to rail and barge transportation.
Walker County Airport, also known as Bevill Field, is a public airport located five miles northwest of Jasper. Bevill Field can accommodate most corporate and private aircraft on a 5,000 foot runway. Sanders Aviation provides FBO services as well as FAA Examination, Flight Training and Aircraft Maintenance.
