Isanti County is well connected. It is located 35 miles straight north of downtown Minneapolis on Central Avenue/TH 65. Highway 95 intersects TH 65 in Cambridge and provides easy access to I-35 to the east, and the St. Cloud metro area to the west. The county’s transportation access is an advantage for companies ready to relocate or expand just minutes north of the urbanized metropolitan area.
The BNSF Railway’s mainline between Minneapolis and Duluth offers regular freight service to businesses in Isanti County. High speed passenger rail and commuter rail stations are in the planning stages for downtown Cambridge on the proposed Northern Lights Express.
