This ideal locality has helped establish Oak Cliff as a prime place for business, as it is advantageously served by many forms of transportation.
Several major multi-lane freeways wind in and around Oak Cliff, offering convenient local and regional commuter travel.
I-30 outlines the community’s northern edge, I-20 sits to the south, Loop 12/Spur 408 is found to the west and I-45 traverses the eastern border. I-35, also known as the NAFTA Highway, and U.S. Highway 67 bisect Oak Cliff, serving the area’s north-south traffic.
