Central Arkansas Intermodal Authority
Conway and Perry Counties have formed an Intermodal Authority to develop all areas of Intermodal transportation. The Authority will be working on developing a Port on the Arkansas River that will help economic development in the two counties. The Authority is in the process of having a Study done by the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department to access present and future Intermodal development. The Authority is also in the process of developing a study with the US Army Corp of Engineers on the development of the Arkansas River in Conway and Perry Counties. Currently, the Authority is working with the forestry, natural gas and other industries to develop their logistic strategies in the use of Intermodal Transportation.
