A new report examines the economic effects of moving cargo carried by barges via transportation alternatives such as rail and truck.

The report comes as lock closure and ecological separation are being considered for the Chicago Waterway System, to combat an Asian carp invasion. It also refutes claims of tremendous economic hardship if changes to the Chicago area waterway are made.
