​​​​​​​​TEXARKANA, MILLER COUNTY - The FedEx Distribution Center in Maxwell Industrial Park is about 65 percent complete and expected to open within the next two to three months.

The 130,000-sf center is a $12–$15 million investment in the park and will involve the development of 15 to 23 acres.

The overall economic effect, including the construction phase, is an estimated $25 million, said Dr. Kenny Haskin, Texarkana, Ark., city manager.

About 60 jobs will be created through the investment, full-time jobs paying more than $20 per hour and part-time paying $11.07 per hour.

Maxwell Industrial Park is adjacent to the Texarkana Regional Airport and connects to I-30 via I-49, which runs through the park.
