The Monongahela River is fully navigable from its mouth at the Ohio River in Pittsburgh, past Morgantown upstream to Fairmont. Morgantown Lock and Dam, located in the southern part of the city, helps to provide a continuous pool heading upstream towards the Hildebrand Lock and Dam, and the Opekiska Lock and Dam. Point Marion Lock and Dam, the next downstream dam, is responsible for most of the river’s pool in Morgantown.
Other features include:
- Over 25 acres of developable property directly adjacent to the Monongahela River
- Two permitted docking ports permitted through the Army Corp of Engineering
- Accommodating docks providing large barge access
- Rail spur access availability to riverfront sites
