North American Transportation Corridor Network

Trade flows across the three North American countries have increased substantially since the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but there is no movement toward developing a true North American Transportation Corridor Network. This report examines two types of North American transportation corridor networks. The first is a transportation infrastructure network that spans across the three North American countries, including highways, railroads, and port of entries which are all part of a large multimodal transportation network. The second type of network analyzed, is a research network that is a collection and collaboration of organizations, individuals, and research that have the goal of improving transportation in North America. Through this research project, a group of transportation experts from the United States, Mexico and Canada was assembled through a webinar to discuss issues related to a North American transportation corridor plan. The formation of a North American transportation center is recommended to research and educate government officials on the current and projected state of transportation in North America.
