Advantage Valley

West Virginia’s Charleston -Huntington Metro Region

Advantage Valley in southwestern West Virginia is a nine-county region stretching from Huntington to Charleston, forming one of the nation’s most resource-rich and business-friendly corridors.

Served by three Interstates (I-64, I-77, and I-79) and several U.S. highways with Interstate access, Ad-vantage Valley has fast connections to key cities and markets throughout the eastern half of the nation. Busy CSX and Norfolk Southern mainlines connect the region to the continent’s rail network and ports along the Ohio River and in Virginia. The area is served by four navigable rivers with truck-to-barge capabilities, two ports, and two regional airports.

Advantage Valley’s history in industries such as coal production earned local workers (and there are 285,000 of them in our labor shed) a reputation for initiative and employer loyalty.
