Fairfax, VA | 12.21.2018

Dewberry developed strategic plan for 2,500-acre multimodal industrial park.

The North Carolina Global TransPark Authority (NCGTP) hired Dewberry to prepare a strategic business plan for the 2,500-acre, state-owned multimodal industrial park, which was presented to the North Carolina Joint Legislative Transportation Oversight Committee in April 2018. The plan was awarded an Honors Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina in recognition of its collaborative-based structure.

Dewberry conducted market analysis and strategic repositioning, assessed infrastructure needs for improved market viability, and developed a market-driven action plan to guide future growth and job-creation opportunities for the industrial park and the surrounding area.

Work also included outreach to North Carolina’s transportation, commerce, and agriculture departments as well as economic developers, regional planning organizations, Class 1 railroads and the facility shortline operator, and private industry. Aspects of the plan are currently being implemented.

Dewberry’s recommendations include improved transportation and land-use planning; enhanced access for air cargo, rail, and highway transport; and connection to nearby deep-water, international ports.

“The Global TransPark is an incredible investment for North Carolina,” said Dewberry Project Manager and Director of Ports and Intermodal Rachel Vandenberg, PE. “As the state works toward improving the transportation network regionally, we’re excited to help lay the groundwork for those developments.”

NCGTP is expected to provide increased economic opportunity for the state, including jobs and business recruitment and development opportunities for residents of North Carolina.
