6. here`s the problem....

one barge hold 70 trailers full of grain.

is there enough rail cars and trucks to carry the same amount as the barges do? does the port in new orleans have the ability to handle trucks and rail cars? would the west and east coast ports be able to handle the grain and other products that go through new orleans? those barges come back up the river loaded with commodities that are needed in the heartland.

the cost of the alternatives would cost this country billions.
