Located within the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, Burleson is Fort Worth’s closest and largest neighbor to the south. It is strategically bisected by one of the most traveled interstates in America, I-35 West, the NAFTA corridor that supports North American manufacturing. The city surrounds this massive commerce pipeline, providing over nine miles of interstate frontage, including the steadily expanding Highpoint business park. I-35 West connects to a number of other interstates, including I-30 and I-20, which traverse the state of Texas and branch across the country, allowing for the wide distribution of goods.
Get In and Out
Air travel is readily available to residents and visitors, with the local Fort Worth Spinks Airport and three commercial airports within an hour’s drive.
From Burleson it is also easy to connect to large rail shipping hubs. 31 miles straight North of Burleson, mostly paralleling I-35W, is the enormous BNSF Railway Intermodal Facility. 57 miles due East of Burleson is the huge Union Pacific Intermodal Terminal. The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is also served by the Kansas City Southern railroad, with an Intermodal facility in Wylie, 73 miles northeast or Burleson.
Sorry, no ocean next to Burleson. However, the Gulf of Mexico is less than six hours south, where you’ll find the Port of Houston, one of the busiest seaports in the world.
