A Brief History of Jonesboro
- The city of Jonesboro is the fifth-largest city in the state of Arkansas, home to roughly 67,000 residents. Like Fayetteville, across the state of Arkansas to the west, Jonesboro is a college town, home to Arkansas State University. It is the largest city in northeastern Arkansas and the principal city of the Jonesboro metropolitan area, which has a population of about 161,000. It grew slowly but expanded much more rapidly after Arkansas State was constructed, and over the years the city has grown not just into a college town but a regional center of transportation, trade, mining and agriculture, as well as eduational services and retail outlets.

What to Expect When Shipping to or from Jonesboro
- The hardest part of transporting a vehicle to or from Jonesboro is the fact that it sits about 40-50 miles away from the main interstate that runs through northeastern Arkansas, I-55. Connected to the interstate only by several state routes, it makes it more difficult for car transporters to get there – as well as more expensive – because it’s a bit off the beaten path, so to speak. Though I-55 is a prominent north-south interstate that runs through Arkansas, it services mostly rural areas between Jackson, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee, which sits on the eastern border of Arkansas. As such, many shippers aren’t running long routes along I-55, and usually the inner areas of northeastern Arkansas are more expensive because of it. You may be able to save a bit of money by shipping the vehicle to a smaller city or town along I-55, but as transporters generally prefer moving into major metro areas this could also be a bit more expensive. You should talk to your representative for the best way to get into or out of Jonesboro, as they will likely have more information about the area and where shippers are in relation to your vehicle.
