Case Study: A successful corridor at work
Coalition member Omega Morgan completed a study documenting the preferred route for a high, wide and heavy corridor. They loaded three water purification tanks to barge in Portland, Oregon, offloaded the barge in Umatilla, Oregon, and transported them over the road through Oregon, Idaho and Montana to the project site in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. This route proved that transporting high, wide and heavy loads safely and without environmental impact is possible.
