About the High Wide & Heavy Corridor.

MISSION

To develop and manage an advocacy coalition of stakeholders that promotes the benefits of a high, wide and heavy corridor through the Columbia River region and facilitates the planning, funding, construction and operation of the corridor.

GOALS

•Establish a multi-modal route that allows importers and exporters to efficiently move cargo to and from North America through our Columbia River ports.

•Create economic opportunities for the Columbia River region and the greater Pacific Northwest.

•Coordinate regulatory reform and infrastructure improvements by engaging members of the transportation committees of Pacific Northwest states.

NEXT STEPS

•Gain support for the corridor from the departments of transportation (DOTs), legislators, businesses and stakeholders.

•Engage with state DOTs, stakeholders and utility providers to identify the most efficient, cost-effective route.

•Develop a capital improvement program to make permanent improvements along the corridor to reduce the need for temporary solutions currently required for each move.

•Initiate a best-practices pilot program with the Oregon Department of Transportation to ensure high, wide and heavy loads are permitted in a timely manner, providing customers with reliable, consistent and predictable outcomes.

•Develop a shared legislative agenda and supporting materials about each state’s current transportation challenges.

•Share best practices among each state’s DOT to enhance understanding of current issues and potential solutions for transporting over-dimensional loads.
