Northport is the Port of Lewiston’s waterfront property, and the home of the Port’s business office. The site’s proximity to US 12, rail transportation, and the river make this site the ideal location for intermodal operations.

Northport’s proximity to highways, rail lines, and the river make it the ideal choice for intermodal operations. The Port gives preference to potential tenants that rely heavily on the transportation industry for day-to-day operations.

On-site Facilties

Our on-site facilities make it easy for Port shippers to route their products globally and still remain competitive in the marketplace.

  • Public Dock. The Port’s intermodal public dock provides easy access to river, road and rail shipping options.
  • Warehousing. Inland 465 Warehousing and Distribution operates the Port’s 150,000 square-foot distribution facility located adjacent to the Port of Lewiston container yard.
  • Grain Facilities. Grain shipments are the number one export leaving the Lower Granite Pool. Lewis-Clark Terminal, the privately-owned grain facility adjacent to the Port, has a combined storage capacity of 9 million bushels.


The Lewis-Clark Valley MPO, in collaboration with the Port of Lewiston and Lewis-Clark Terminal, initiated a study to plan for the future of moving commerce through Lewiston’s Northport area.  The study is intended to identify transportation improvements that enhance connectivity between truck, rail and barge activity in the Northport area.

The study evaluates the existing rail network within the Northport area and provides recommendations for rail improvements.  The study also addresses existing conditions between the Northport area and Hwy 12 and Hwy 128 road connections and provides alternatives to improve these road connections.  The study assesses the existing conditions of the roadway network within the Northport area, and recommends a plan for proposed improvements.

The study was conducted by David Evans & Associates with Clearwater Economic Development Association coordinating public involvement activities.  Public Open Houses were held in September 2013 and January 2014.  The project began mid-May 2013 and completed in May 2014.
