Platte County houses approximately 20,000 workers in the KCI Corridor-our main employment thoroughfare. The corridor is home to several of our major employers and runs I-29 from 152 HWY to the airport.
Platte County, the Kansas City region, and the state of Missouri consistently rank below the national average in various business cost categories. Accessibility to transportation, a reliable and productive work force and central location combine to make Platte County the place to be. Of all the counties in the KC Metro area, only Platte County offers direct airport access, as we are home to the Kansas City International Airport. Our workforce also has direct access to several interstates and major highways; I-435, I-29, I-635, 169 HWY, 9 HWY, and quick access to I-35.
Our partners also have an abundance of information on the area. If you’re looking for more detail please look to the Live/Work section of The Kansas City Area Development Council’s website. Simply click on the logo below.
