Twin Arrows Travel Center Gets Approved

The Navajo Nation Council approved legislation for the creation of a travel center near the Twin Arrows casino.

The plan increases economic development at the I-40 interchange near the Twin Arrows Resort, 25 miles east of Flagstaff. Ideally, the project would benefit the Navajo Nation’s gaming industry and overall economy by attracting more visitors to the gaming facility, providing job creation, creating tax revenues from retail sales and construction, providing business site lease fee revenues and establishing utilities infrastructure necessary to support future development in the area.

The money for the project is provided from the $554 million trust mismanagement settlement the Navajo Nation received in 2014 from the federal government.

Construction of the travel center is expected to begin this summer and is tentatively scheduled to open in late spring of 2017.
