A Well-Connected Transportation Hub
Located on Interstate 380 and less than 30 miles from Interstate 80, Hiawatha’s central location provides ease of shipping and receiving from the east and west coasts and points north and south. Our Eastern Iowa city is home to active transportation routes via air, rail, and ground.
Access to Green Energy Resources
While the utility infrastructure for electricity, natural gas, and high-speed fiber is strong in Hiawatha and surrounding areas, many businesses and homes in Hiawatha have taken advantage of available green energy resources, such as solar and geothermal installations. Expert local resources for heating, cooling, and power help companies conserve energy and steward the environment. In addition, local utility companies offer incentives to businesses for saving energy in their building design, manufacturing processes, and heating, cooling, and lighting.

New Hiawatha Interchange Expected in 2023
As the Hiawatha population and business community has grown, traffic throughout our city has increased. For many years, our community and others have worked towards the completion of another east-west through street and interchange on I-380. In late 2022, the Tower Terrace Road bridge and interchange is expected to be complete. The Tower Terrace Road exit will make it easier than ever to reach Hiawatha from I-380.
