Area Map

The City of Concord is located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina in the western half of Cabarrus County. As the largest municipality in Cabarrus County in both land area and population, Concord's population represents nearly half of the County's total population.  

With Concord being a part of the larger metropolitan region anchored by the City of Charlotte, it is within close proximity to Uptown Charlotte and other regional employment, shopping and entertainment centers.

Interstate 85 traverses the City's northern border, making Concord easily accessible. The new Interstate 485 Outer Loop provides links throughout the metropolitan region. Completion of the final sections of the Outer Loop have improved Concord's connection to the I-77 corridor -- a key route to mid-west and northern states as well as to central Charlotte, Rock Hill, and Columbia.

The City of Concord's Regional Airport is the 4th busiest airport in the State. Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, one of the top-rated airports in the nation, is only 30 miles south of Concord.
