     History
    The Waco-based trucking company, which built the terminal in the 1960s, is marketing the 115-acre property properties including the old stadium site and vacant University of Dallas acreage, the interchange features about 400 acres for potential development.

    Central Freight Lines President Don Orr said the company is moving its terminal partly to escape delays and safety concerns associated with the arrival of light rail service and highway construction. Trains will cross directly in front of the Irving terminal’s driveway every 7 minutes.

    At its busiest, Central Freight Lines trucks were entering and exiting the Irving terminal at a rate of 2,200 crossings per day, Orr said. The highway construction has cut the company’s productivity by about 12 percent.

    Central Freight’s 115-acre Irving property includes about 571,000 square feet of buildings, including a 522-door terminal and a fully equipped maintenance shop.
