Fact:

At 1,460 miles long, the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System is the third longest tributary in the Mississippi River System
Today the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System system is 443 miles long, with 18 locks and dams, that allows cargo to overcome an elevation difference of 420 feet
In 2018, the Port of Little Rock unloaded cargo from Brazil, Jamaica, Australia, Canada, Africa, China, Russia, Israel, Morocco, India, Korea, Japan, Germany, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela
The volume of cargo handled on the McKellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation system annually would require an additional 400,000 semi-tractor trucks forming a line over 4,500 miles long - twice the distance from New York City to Los Angeles
