About Erie

Erie is a city located in northwestern Pennsylvania, on the southern shore of Lake Erie. It is the fourth-largest city in the state and has a rich history dating back to the early 19th century. Erie's strategic location on the Great Lakes made it an important transportation hub for the region, especially for freight transportation.

One of the key features of Erie's transportation infrastructure is the Port of Erie, which is the only port in Pennsylvania that is directly on Lake Erie. The port has been a vital link for the transportation of goods, particularly iron ore, coal, and limestone, which are essential for the steel industry. The port also serves as a gateway for international trade, with connections to Canada and other Great Lakes ports.

In addition to its maritime transportation, Erie is also well-connected by rail and road. The city is served by several major highways, including Interstate 79 and Interstate 90, which provide easy access to other major cities in the region. Erie is also a major rail hub, with multiple rail lines passing through the city, including the Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX Transportation.
