Benefit Cost-analysis of Constructing a Rail Connection and Intermodal Facility at the Missipppi River Port of Yellow Bend in Arkansas
University of Arkansas, Mack-Blackwell National Rural Transportation Study Center, 1995 - Containerization - 56 pages
The purpose of the present study is to estimate the benefits of providing the Port of Yellow Bend with a railroad connection and an intermodal facility. This port comprises a manmade slack water harbor with its associated industrial fill and is located at river mile 553 on the right bank of the Mississippi River. The Chicot-Desha Metropolitan Port Authority plans to establish an industrial park on the landside of the levee adjacent to the port site. The port went into operation in September, 1993, and handled 102,000 tons of cargo in the first twelve months - crushed stone, sand, fertilizers, logs, wood, chips, milled rice, and cottonseed.
