HWH corridor gets a boost with Morrow grant

The port of Morrow, located on the Columbia River near Boardman, Oregon, has been awarded a USD19.4 million grant to fund infrastructure projects at the marine terminals within the port. 

The grant was issued under the US Department of Transportation’s Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) programme. 

The investment will be used to extend rail lines from the Union Pacific mainline to four terminals at the port. This will enable rail-to-barge access for shipments along the Columbia River, said the port of Morrow

The project also includes infrastructure improvements, including new bridges and connecting roads. 

The port of Morrow is one of the founding members of the High, Wide and Heavy (HWH) coalition that aims to develop a 1,300 mile (2,092 km) transport corridor for energy and infrastructure project cargoes destined for the Pacific Northwest region. 

Other HWH coalition members include the port of Longview, port of Portland, port of Vancouver USA, Jones Stevedoring, Omega Morgan, Oregon Trucking Association and Tidewater Barge Lines.
