Southwest Arkansas Regional Intermodal Authority

Image title


The Southwest Arkansas Regional Intermodal Authority was formed in February 2010. The Clark County Quorum Court adopted an ordinance to join three other counties in forming the Southwest Arkansas Regional Intermodal Authority. Clark County joins Montgomery, Pike, and Dallas Counties in this effort.


The entity operates under Act 690 of 1997, which allows cities and counties to acquire, equip, construct, and operate industrial parks that offer freight support services like warehouses and packaging and distribution facilities. Creation of this authority has the potential benefits of improving existing passenger and freight facilities, developing new transportation centers, and enhancing passenger and freight transportation modes by the formation of public/private partnerships.


A key feature of the Act is that it enables authority members to combine resources to be more competitive in retaining existing industries and recruiting new commercial activities. By combining resources, The Southwest Arkansas Regional Intermodal Authority maximizes the effectiveness and efficiency of the regions’ transportation system.
