WINSLOW, ARIZ. — The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded $974,000 for the I-40 TradePort Corridor, an 805-mile, multi-state coalition to develop a network of clean energy logistics hubs as an integral part of the nation’s supply chain solution.
As one of 14 national recipients under the Regional Infrastructure Accelerators (RIA) program, the I-40 TradePort Corridor will kick off with a key stretch in northern Arizona. Scottsdale-based Atlas Global Development Group will focus its efforts on the I-40 corridor between Kingman and Winslow, known as the I40TPC Winslow. The northern Arizona stretch is an essential route for nearly one-third of the United States’ gross-domestic product.
The I40TPC Winslow acts as the first critical leg of a next-generation national freight and cargo corridor system that is constructed over an integrated clean energy, high-efficiency cargo management platform. It brings critically needed economic development to the Native American and rural Arizona communities it runs through.
