Industrial Park Coming To Longview

A huge business center, industrial park and wildlife preserve is coming to Gregg County. The 1,500 acre River Bend Business Center will be located off FM 1252 near I-20 and Highway 31. The park will include a 175-acre industrial park, a 500-acre business center, and even a 300 acre wetland and wildlife preserve.

The development is a private investment, and could attract businesses and jobs to the area. Future development also will include 400 acres of major distribution and manufacturing facilities.
