[ARCHIVED] 2013 Red Rock Industrial Park & Rail Port Study RFP Now Available

This study is intended to explore the feasibility of providing additional rail service and flexibility generally to the existing rail-served industrial park located in the northeast region of the City of Knoxville (See Exhibit A: Attached). The study is intended to explore possible expansion of rail infrastructure in the area to provide additional rail-served properties for future industries. The study is also intended to provide investigation into a possible transload facility which would allow the ability to send and receive materials by rail for customers who do not currently have rail access. This type of facility could provide service for inbound products or outbound finished products including dry goods and/or liquids. As many communities and businesses in the area are no longer rail-served, this location could provide access to rail shipping for those previously unable to do so.
