Dayton Texas

All Roads (and Railways) Lead to Dayton

All roads (and railways) lead to Dayton

Four highways converge in Dayton: U.S. Hwy 90, part of the historic Old Spanish Trail Highway system, State Hwy 146, State Hwy 321, and F.M. 1960. Access between the city and the greater Houston area will be even easier beginning in 2022, with the completion of the Grand Parkway (SH-99), a 180-mile third loop around Houston which will pass through the western portion of Dayton. Union Pacific recently expanded its rail car capacity by adding 280 acres of storage space. Two major rail-served business parks are under construction, adding over 1,300 acres of land for industrial growth. From our roots as a processing and shipping point for the area’s rice farmers to our connectivity as a transportation hub for products of all types, Dayton is firmly positioned as a logistics and transportation center, which means jobs and economic stability.
