Barge on Ohio River at McAlpine lock and dam near Louisville Kentucky 
Rivers are an integral component of Kentucky’s transportation and economic system. Water shipments through Kentucky’s riverports provide: 
  • Reliable, safe transport of commodities over long distances at a relatively low cost
  • An important location incentive to attract firms that ship or receive large volumes of freight by water
  • An alternative to highway and rail transport, thus, reducing highway and rail construction needs and providing the potential for considerable infrastructure savings
