Marion Union Pacific Intermodal Facility

-A A +A
1997–1998. 5500 Kuhn Rd.
  • (Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, A Division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage)

Marion’s location beside the Mississippi River, adjacent to rail lines, near 1-55 and 1-40, which between them traverse the country from north to south and east to west, and a mere few miles from the international airport in Memphis, Tennessee, made the town an ideal location for an intermodal transportation center. In 1998 Union Pacific opened this facility on six hundred acres just northwest of Marion to replace an overcapacity terminal in Memphis. It is one of Union Pacific’s largest intermodal terminals for moving freight via rail, truck, ship, or air.
