By City of Kingman
In an announcement from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the City of Kingman has assumed a pivotal role as the driving force behind the formation of a groundbreaking private/public coalition to advance the development of the I-40 TradePort Corridor. This innovative integrated supply chain system encompasses clean energy, logistics, and industrial hubs and is a collaborative effort with the lead agency, Bernalillo County, NM at its helm.
The City of Kingman, in collaboration with Winslow, and a partnership of regional stakeholders, including the Port of Los Angeles, CA, Bernalillo County, NM, Sandoval County, NM, and the Village of Los Lunas, NM, has been designated as a Regional Infrastructure Accelerator by the USDOT.
Over the coming year, the USDOT RIA will play a pivotal role in expediting project delivery through comprehensive initiatives such as project planning, in-depth studies, meticulous analysis, and preliminary engineering and design work. To kickstart the planning phase, the I-40 TradePort Corridor has received an initial seed funding of $974K.
Working closely with the USDOT Build America Bureau, the I-40 TradePort will explore various agency financing programs to bolster infrastructure investments within the corridor’s vital hubs.
