Transportation / River Tonnage & Barge Traffic

Traffic data for the Port of Pittsburgh comes from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Waterborne Commerce Statistics Center and its Lock Performance Monitoring System.

Data in this instance are a port-to-port tonnage measurement and are reported annually here and elsewhere with a time lag between data gathering and publication delay of 1 1/2 to 2 years.
