Pittsburgh has been named the start of the Federal Marine Highway, extending from Kansas City connecting with the Mississippi River and the IntraCoastal Waterway.
The Federal Marine Highway Corridor (M-70) includes the Ohio, Mississippi, and Missouri Rivers, and connecting commercial navigation channels, ports, and harbors from Pittsburgh to Kansas City. Spanning Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri, it connects to the M-55 Corridor in St. Louis, Missouri.
The corridor has the potential to help alleviate a portion of the congestion from the existing landside routes, while simultaneously reducing emissions, conserving energy, improving safety, and reducing highway maintenance costs. Additionally, it helps to increase economic and commercial activity in the region by removing barriers to efficient freight transportation.Learn More
