The Project

The Port of Little Rock is seeking funding from a variety of sources, including federal, to repair its original dock on the Arkansas River, located at approximately 9001 Lindsey Road. This main dock was built around 1967 and is in a state of disrepair; additionally, modern freight management requires some changes to facilitate more efficient movement. The project would also extend the dock and existing rail service an additional 200 feet downriver and install a crane to move bulky freight. The crane type would facilitate eventual container-on-barge traffic should that become regular traffic on the Arkansas River. Total project cost is expected to be around $25 million.

The drawing below illustrates project elements, with the exception that the current proposal is to only extend the dock 200 ft. The extension will allow 2 barges to be worked at one time.

Two types of cranes are being explored for the project:
