Columbia Snake River Grain Export Gateway

Each year approximately 44 million tons of cargo valued at approximately $24 billion moves through the deep draft Lower Columbia River, according to the Pacific Northwest Waterways Association (PNWA).

“The Columbia Snake River System is the nation’s largest wheat export gateway. When combined with soybeans, corn, pulses and other grains, it is the third largest grain export gateway in the world. It is number one on the west coast for forest products and mineral bulk exports,” notes the PNWA.

The Mouth of the Columbia River jetty repair and rehabilitation project underway with J.E. McAmis, a heavy-civil, marine and environmental contractor, is critical.
