CLOVIS NAMED AS ONE OF BNSF CERTIFIED SITES
CLOVIS (KSMX) – BNSF Railway recently designated two new industrial locations as the company’s Certified Sites. Clovis, along with Galesburg, Illinois were selected as the two new sites. The sites must undergo a thorough analysis, which included an evaluation of environmental and geotechnical standards, available utilities, site availability and existing and projected infrastructure to be considered for the designation. In Clovis, approximately 240 acres are available for development in the park, which is located near BNSF’s Southern Transcon route and U.S. Highways 60, 70 and 84. Clovis is also home to a BNSF classification yard as well as a dispatching center. Chase Gentry of the Clovis Industrial Development Corporation said that currently “two businesses are located at the park now, with additional industrial expansion expected as a result of the announcement.” The program is a strategic approach that addresses the increasing demand for customer site locations by developing various types of facilities across BNSF’s network.
