With major rail lines, an airport, the interstate and U.S. and state highways, businesses can move their product smoothly through Watertown. Located in the heart of the upper Midwest, Watertown is approximately halfway between Omaha and Winnipeg on Interstate 29, and about 200 miles from Minneapolis on U.S. 212.

It’s strategic position at the intersection of Interstate 29 and U.S. 212 means local businesses have easy and quick access to major trucking routes in the Midwest and south central Canada. A series of federal and state highways, including U.S. 81 and S.D. 20, provide rural commerce and a southern connector that get your goods and services to their intended location as efficiently as possible.

The Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railroad also provides reliable interstate commerce via the rail with access in our Hanten Industrial Park. For shipping by air, the Watertown Regional Airport, serviced by Great Lakes Air Aviation, provides daily flights to Minneapolis/St. Paul, as well as overnight shipping services from some of the country’s leading providers.
