River Highway

The Columbia-Snake River System is a 465-mile long water route providing slackwater freight passage from the Portland, Oregon seaport to Lewiston, Idaho. The route is a vital part of the region’s agriculture industry, transporting over 2.5 million metric tonnes of grain each year.

Consisting of 8 lock and dam facilities and 20 ports, the River Highway is a vital part of the Pacific Northwest’s infrastructure and supports thousands of jobs across several states.

This time-lapse project shows the journey of a typical grain barge from the Snake River’s upper reaches to (nearly) its destination in the lower Columbia River gorge.
