Dallas intermodal hub to open Friday

| 4/10/2007

What’s being billed as the largest intermodal transportation hub under development in North America will have its grand opening in a Dallas suburb this Friday, April 13.

The hub is located along Interstate 35 in Lancaster, which is in a suburban area just south of Dallas.

According to a press release from the developers, The Allen Group, the master plan calls for building out the facility to 6,000 acres of distribution, manufacturing, office and retail use. The developers said the facility will eventually create more than 60,000 jobs, both directly and indirectly.
