In addition to being the merger point for U.S. Highways 43 and 72, Florence, Alabama is connected with every other major city through a network of Alabama highways in the area. Auto haulers traveling south may pass through Florence, especially when shipping to the western portion of the state. Three bridges connect Florence to the rest of Alabama across the Tennessee River, which can occasionally result in traffic delays, especially when one of the bridges is being maintained. Highway 72 connects Florence with Athens and Decatur in the east, which makes quick shipping to and from Florence entirely possible once the hauler connects with a major Interstate like 65 or 565.
Alternative transportation options to Florence include railway. The Tennessee Southern Railroad connects Florence with Columbia, Tennessee, and is a regular shipping route for many auto transport companies. Florence’s position in the humid subtropical zone of the United States gives the city four distinct seasons, including a hot, dry summer. Flooding from the Tennessee River is possible, which can cripple transportation in Florence, even extending to shipping delays in the south of the state. A new four-lane link to Interstate 65 completed in 2007 has greatly reduced the risk of delays when shipping a vehicle in Florence, Alabama.
