Interstate 55

ELP 55 has 2.5 miles of frontage along Interstate 55.  The site is served by a full, four-way interchange at Lorenzo Road and I-55. I-55 is the main north-south artery that serves the central United States. I-55 begins in downtown Chicago, stretches through St. Louis, Missouri, Memphis, Tennessee & Jackson, Mississippi and ends just west of New Orleans.

ELP 55, located on I-55, gives users a huge advantage over neighboring rail served facilities.  A truck leaving ELP 55 can access I-55 in a matter of seconds.  The BNSF and UP served parks to the northeast are 6 miles and 9 miles respectively from I-55.  When users/operators have tens of thousands of trucks in and out of their buildings annually the cost savings at ELP 55 is immense.

Two Miles of BNSF Mainline Frontage

ELP 55 has approximately 2 miles of frontage on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Mainline that runs from the Port of Long Beach and Los Angeles to Chicago. ELP 55 and the BNSF executed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate the BNSF’s intention and ELP 55’s intention to jointly develop, market and lease the Park. ELP 55 will provide an extremely efficient, full-service international container operation for the BNSF’s customers.
