Job Creation & Community Benefits

The Red Rock Project will be a long-term boost for economic development, creating one of the largest logistics centers in the Western United States. Union Pacific alone will create hundreds of permanent job positions and promote development of untold job numbers related to manufacturing industries using the yard.
 
By attracting industrial developments along the I-10 corridor, investment in nearby communities will increase. The Red Rock Project will enhance Arizona’s competitive future by creating an anchor to attract manufacturing investments. This 250 acre project will be surrounded by more than 1,000 acres of industrial land that has the potential to be served by rail.
