The communities of St. Francois County have made a commitment to assist businesses and manufacturers in locating and expanding in the County by providing well-equipped industrial parks. There are four developed industrial parks in St. Francois County–the Bonne Terre Industrial Park, Farmington East Industrial Park, Farmington West Industrial Park and the Park Hills Industrial Park.
Significant from a distribution standpoint, all four industrial parks offer immediate access to U.S. Highway 67, which intersects Interstate 55 in Jefferson County, approximately 27 miles north of the central County area. U.S. Highway 67 is a limited-access, four-lane divided highway from I-55 south to the City of Fredericktown.
