Proximity to Market

Norman Economic Development Coalition

Proximity to Market

Norman’s location in the heart of America alleviates travel to either coast and provides Norman with connections to more than 80 million people within a 500-mile radius. Positioning on the southern edge of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area also enables Norman to access supplementary human capital from the region’s population of 1.4 million residents.

Norman’s central location at the crossroads of I-35 and I-40, two major interstates, plays a dynamic role. Ease of mobility is essential for any frequent traveler, whether for purposes of business or leisure. In addition to accommodating vehicular travel, the nearby Will Rogers World Airport services direct flights to major cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington D.C. among others.
