Clark County is located just 15 minutes away from the Portland International Airport. The Port of Vancouver offers a deep-draft harbor for ocean-going commerce, and transcontinental rail links serve the county. Two freeways, Interstate 5 and Interstate 205, have bridges that join major economic centers in both Washington and Oregon.
