Columbiana County Advantages

Columbiana County is central to Ohio’s new shale oil and gas industry. We have an excellent transportation infrastructure (highway, rail and water) and shovel ready industrial sites.

Located at the northernmost point of the Ohio River in the U.S., Columbiana County borders both PA and WV. Columbiana County is served by two class one rail lines(NS and CSX) and the regional railroad (Youngstown and Southern). Four-lane State Route 7 and 11 provide interstate access forty miles to the north (I-76/80) and forty miles to the south (I-70), with US 30 providing a direct east-west route to Pittsburgh and Canton. There are 11 cargo terminals on the Ohio River, including the Port Authority’s new state of the art Intermodal Facility (rail, truck and barge) in Wellsville.

The Columbiana County Port Authority can serve as your one stop shop for doing business in Columbiana County and we can also help with regional referrals. The Port Authority has significant transactional experience and the reputation for making projects happen. Got a question? Contact us.
