What Dixon Has to Offer

Why Dixon?

A Cultural & Economic Hub for Northern Illinois

Centrally located between several metro areas, Dixon is a prime location that pulls traffic from across the Northern Illinois Region

Servicing the under serviced.

Rural communities are often overlooked, but with a population size of 60,000 within our trade area, there is plenty of untapped potential.

High Traffic & Visibility

With over 13,000 vehicles passing through our I-88 development every day, you can be assured that your project will have prime visibility.

Upcoming Developments

As a part of the I-88 Gateway project we have several new developments underway. 2 new hotels, 4 restaurants, a travel station, bank, and more are all a part of this new expansion. We hope we can count on you too!

We're looking for partners to build Dixon for the next 50 years.
