Upper Midwest Great Lakes Region Freight Corridor Study
The MRUTC is working hard to get a study approved that would look at freight transportation issues and needs in our region. The area to be researched would follow approximately the same path as Interstates 80, 90 and 94. However, the study itself would be multimodal in scope, looking at rail, water and air transportation along with freight movements on the roads.As of October 2002, our center is working on getting the necessary funding from the states in the region. Below are some files that will give background to what is being planned for this study. All proposals are draft in nature and have not been endorsed by the states.

Since its inception in 1995, the CANAMEX Corridor has grown to become the cornerstone for the seamless and efficient transportation of goods, services, people and information between Canada, Mexico and the United States. As the implementation of NAFTA moves toward fruition, the CANAMEX Corridor will broaden its initiatives to harvest the benefits of increased trade, tourism and economic activity within the region.
The CANAMEX Corridor provides many opportunities to build regional economic prosperity through innovating:
The Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor
Transportation--it's the lifeline of commerce and our economy. Just as rivers and railroads carved East-West corridors in our nation's early years, today, concrete and asphalt corridors are needed to connect and expand the economies of the United States, Mexico, Canada, and our local economies that trade on a global scale. Together, cities along the Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor can be the gateway to trade for the Midwest. The Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor is a planned four-lane divided highway that will facilitate the efficient transportation of goods and people from Mexico through west Texas, the Panhandle and on to Denver, Colorado. The development of the corridor utilizing I-27 will accomplish the following:
I-95 Corridor Coalition is a regional partnership of major public and private transportation agencies, toll authorities and industry associations serving the northeastern portion of the united States from Maine to Virginia. Built on the foundation of cooperation, consensus and coordination, the Coalition members come together to address ITS solutions to shared transportation problems and challenges. By leveraging resources, sharing information, and coordinating programs, the Coalition adds value to the individual member organization's activities, and provides a synergy for more dynamic and seamless transportation solutions throughout the corridor.
I-10 NATIONAL FREIGHT CORRIDOR STUDY
FAST is working to streamline the movement of freight through the central Puget Sound region of Washington State. Since 1996, the FAST partnership has studied freight movement via rails, roads and shipping ports to develop projects that move freight more efficiently and increase safety for cars, trucks and trains.FAST identified 15 top priority projects from Everett to Tacoma for phase I: seven projects are complete. More FAST phase I and II projects are in the pipeline for 2004 - 2005.FAST is an innovative partnership composed of transportation agencies, ports, cities, economic development organizations, trucking, rail and business interests.
