Competitive Advantage

Livingston Parish’s many assets give businesses here a competitive advantage.  The parish is tucked between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, allowing our employers to draw from a regional pool of customers, highly skilled employees, education and training opportunities and major airports and river ports. Many communities are located along Interstate 12, providing high visibility and easy access.  Interstates 10 and 55 are nearby, linking Livingston with major interstate routes, and U.S. Highway 190 provides an alternate route parallel to Interstate 12.

The Baton Rouge Regional Airport is only 15 miles away, and New Orleans’ Louis Armstrong International Airport on New Orleans is 80 miles away, both provide passenger and freight services.

The parish is 20 miles from the Port of Baton Rouge and 90 miles from the Port of New Orleans. Canadian National Rail has a mainline that serves the Livingston Industrial Park and transverses Livingston Parish.

The parish also has two electric utility providers, Entergy and Demco,  and number of natural gas distributors and pipelines that service our available sites.

The quality of life in Livingston is unbeatable.  Our communities offer top-ranked public schools, safe neighborhoods and endless recreational opportunities, bustling retail centers, natural beauty and festivals galore – all this with the advantages of a nearby Capitol City.
