Columbia River High, Wide & Heavy Corridor

MAKING THE CASE

Establishing a high, wide and heavy transportation corridor connecting global markets to Western North America is critical to our regional economy.

WHY A HIGH, WIDE AND HEAVY CORRIDOR?

There will be continued demand to deliver high, wide and heavy loads to inland destinations from Columbia River ports. Each year, our region loses significant business opportunities and shippers lose time and money because infrastructure constraints prevent the movement of these loads, which can include components for wind energy and infrastructure, and other large equipment and machinery needed to expand or maintain our roads and power grid. As demand for oversize cargoes grows and the cargoes themselves increase in size, the ability to move them through our region is critical to our economic health. A safe and effective high, wide and heavy corridor provides shippers and local businesses the certainty they need to reliably move their products to market and continue contributing to our economy.
