In supercooled liquids and dense colloidal suspensions, strings of correlated motion represent a dynamical correlation length that grows as the glass transition is approached. Here, we present a granular system driven close to the jamming transition that shares this hallmark dynamical feature. In analogy, it exhibits a dynamical length scale that grows as the jamming transition is approached.
