Avon is located in Washington Township, Hendricks County, approximately five miles west of Indianapolis. Interstate Highways 70, 65 and 74, as well as U.S. Highways 36, 40 and 136 all converge within Hendricks County.
The Interstate 465 beltway circles Indianapolis, linking travelers to I-65, I-70 and I-74. Avon also sits just seven miles east of Danville (the county seat) on U.S. 36.
Access to these extensive interstates certainly gives Avon the upper hand for location in the area.
Access within the county is just as convenient, as Indiana 267 winds directly through Avon, connecting with Plainfield to the south and Brownsburg to the north. The modern roundabout at the popular intersection of CR 100 S and Dan Jones Road will be accessible later this year. The Avon Town Council members strive to stay ahead of area traffic needs and are constantly working toward meeting the important needs of the expanding community.
Avon offers excellent access to the Indianapolis International Airport (IND). The airport serves over 8.5 million passengers annually and offers round-the-clock shipping opportunities. IND is situated eight miles south west from downtown Indianapolis, an easy 15-minute drive for along major highways. Eagle Creek Air Park, used as a location for private planes, is only a 10-minute drive northeast.
Businesses enjoy access to well over 100 motor freight trucking companies in the Indianapolis area – a situation that fosters competitive pricing and high customer service standards. Railroad services are offered via Amtrak and CSX at Avon Yard.
