With easy access to I-71, I-76 and U.S. 224 and U.S. 42, nearby commercial growth has blossomed with the addition of Prime Outlets, an extensive retail area. The entire Village of Lodi now offers a Community Reinvestment Area to encourage prospective industrial and commercial growth, as well as improvements to vintage housing.
