About Pittsburg

Print

 

The City of Pittsburg is located on US Hwy 271, one of the busiest highways in East Texas.  Pittsburg is approximately ten miles away from Interstate 30 and forty miles from Interstate 20.  A new loop connecting I-30 to Hwy 271 about six miles north of Pittsburg is now open, making access to the interstate much easier.  This infrastructure development will continue to increase the already high traffic count for Pittsburg as it will bring interstate traffic into the heart of our commercial district.

Pittsburg sits in the geographical center of North East Texas.  Within a fifty mile radius, there are fourteen counties which would constitute the market base of 465,700 people.  Within a thirty mile radius, there are eleven counties and 328,500 people.  The population of the western portion of East Texas is expected to grow by 15 to 20 percent over the next ten years as people from the Dallas/Fort Worth area seek to leave the city in search of  cheap and plentiful assets. Pittsburg has access to these abundant resources such as water, energy, and land.
