LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Little Rock Port Authority hosted a grand opening for its new headquarters on Wednesday.
It's the Arkansas River Resource Center, and the $2 million facility is located on the banks of the Arkansas River. It will function as a welcome center for businesses and corporations that need access to waterway and rail transportation.
"We want people to come here and feel good about central Arkansas, feel good about Little Rock and locate their businesses here, this building that we're dedicating today will help us do that," said Bryan Day, LRPA executive director.
The project was supported by a $960,000 grant from the Economic Development Administration, matched by revenue generated by the LRPA.
