Jones County is part of North Carolina’s Eastern Region and is strategically located within a very short distance of a number of larger counties and cities in the region. Two Interstate Highways, I-40 and I-95, are within an hour’s drive. US Highway 70, a four-lane highway, is a vital and major transportation link from Raleigh, the State Capital. The Morehead City State Port is 45 minutes from Jones County. The other state port at Wilmington is approximately 90 minutes away. Jones County is positioned midway between New York and Florida. This provides quick access to major markets.
