With close proximity to Memphis and an eastern border that runs along the Mississippi River, Crittenden County acts as a crucial shipping hub in the Delta transportation network. Crittenden is also home to a $70 million state-of-the-art Union Pacific Railroad facility in Marion, just north of where I-40 and I-55 converge. And as part of ADTEC, the nation’s top-ranked workforce development model, Mid-South Community College makes Crittenden County a valuable resource for skilled workers.
