Northwest Passage Phase III

The North/West Passage Corridor encompasses the states along I-90/I-94 from Wisconsin to Washington. The states within the North/West Passage Corridor are predominately rural and face similar transportation issues related to traffic management, traveler information, and commercial vehicle operations. Within the corridor states, there are numerous systems for collecting, processing, and integrating traveler and road maintenance information. At present, this information is not readily shared across state borders. Recognizing the value of coordinated, cross-border collaboration for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) deployment to address these issues, the states formed the Transportation Pooled Fund (TPF-5(093) in 2003. Building on several projects recommended in the ITS Integrated Corridor Strategic Plan for North/West Passage, Work Plan 4 presents a series of projects targeted for completion in 2008-2009. The projects continue to integrate traveler information systems and coordinate maintenance operations across state borders.
