Location (Cities & Towns)
Logansport is situated in the heart of Cass County. The city is served by five major highways that provide convenient access from any direction. Because of its proximity to key Indiana and Illinois cities, Cass County is ideal for fostering continuing economic growth and development. US Highway 24 is a major east-west route that connects Logansport with Interstate 65, about 45 minutes to the west. This provides a quick route to Indianapolis' just 60 miles south, and to Chicago, less than three hours away. Heading 12 miles east, US 24 intersects with US 31, a four-lane divided highway that goes north to Michigan and south to Indianapolis. Further east, US 24 connects with I 69 and Fort Wayne.

A boon to business, industry, and the pleasure traveler is coming to fruition. Construction is underway on phases of the Hoosier Heartland Industrial Corridor, a four lane highway connecting Logansport with Fort Wayne and Lafayette, along US 24 and SR 25. US Highway 35 heads north to Michigan City and south to Kokomo, where it joins US 31. State Highway 25 also joins 31 to the northeast and connects Logansport with Lafayette to the southwest. State Highway 29, known as the "Michigan Road," provides another convenient route to Indianapolis.
