A new 45,000 square foot complex for Kenworth of Louisiana is under construction next to Don’s Specialty Meats in Carencro along I-49 at 4100 NE Evangeline Thruway.
Currently, Kenworth’s smaller, 26,000 square foot facility is located on Veterans Memorial Drive next to McDonald’s in Carencro where the city’s traffic is more retail traffic-heavy rather than suited for commercial vehicle traffic. So the move makes the most sense for the trucking facility to be located along an area best suited for large commercial traffic… for now.
The new Kenworth facility will feature a large 40,000 square foot main building along with a smaller 5,000 square foot warehouse space.
Kenworth of Louisiana is just one of the many other commercial trucking companies, like Southeastern Freight Lines, and Old Dominion Freight Line, to relocate their facilities to the I-49 Frontage Road.
Construction of Kenworth’s new Carencro facility started last year and is expected to be completed by mid to late Summer of 2022.
