CANAMEX Corridor

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:

  • Safe and efficient multi-modal TRANSPORTATION NETWORKS
  • Enhanced GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS which requires quality education, accessible telecommunications infrastructure and an appropriate regulatory environment
  • Shared commitment to the region's QUALITY OF LIFE

    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.
    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.

    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: two projects are complete, and -- to date -- seven projects are under construction. More FAST projects are in the pipeline for 2002 - 2004. FAST is an innovative partnership composed of transportation agencies, ports, cities, economic development organizations, trucking, rail and business interests.

    The Portland/Vancouver I-5 Transportation and Trade Partnership brings together Washington and Oregon citizens and leaders to respond to concerns about growing congestion on I-5 between Portland and Vancouver. The purpose of this project is to develop a long-range strategic plan to manage and improve transportation in the I-5 corridor stretching from I-84 in downtown Portland to I-205 north of Vancouver.

    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.
