Where is Vicksburg, Mississippi

Vicksburg is strategically located at the intersection of Interstate 20 and the Mississippi River, giving it accessibility to both water and ground transportation. Additionally, there is rail service and two local airports provide convenient access to the area.

Bordering Warren County to the west, the Mississippi River connects Vicksburg and Warren County to the rest of the world. The Port of Vicksburg, located on the Yazoo Diversion Canal, sees more than 400 million tons of cargo pass through each year.

Traffic counts on Interstate 20 average nearly 55,000 vehicles per day. Vicksburg is the midpoint between Atlanta and Dallas, east to west. Jackson, the Mississippi state capital, is conveniently located 45 miles to the east. State Highway 61, also known as the Blues Highway, runs north through the Delta and south to Natchez alongside the Mississippi River.

Jackson International Airport (JAN), only a 50-minute drive, is the closest airport with access to commercial flights. Closer to Vicksburg, two public-use airports, Vicksburg Municipal Airport and the Vicksburg-Tallulah Airport offer lighted runways, aircraft repair and fuel services.
