Study Description

Interstates 90 and 94 between Wisconsin and Washington function as major corridors for commercial and recreational travel. Extreme winter weather conditions, prevalent in the northern states within this corridor, pose significant operational and travel-related challenges. Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming are predominantly rural and face similar transportation issues related to traffic management, traveler information, and commercial vehicle operations.

Recognizing the value of coordinated, cross-border collaboration for ITS deployment to address these issues, Minnesota initiated a meeting in 2002 with representatives from each of the states within the corridor. The group established itself as a Transportation Pooled Fund in 2003.

North/West Passage members contribute $25,000 or more annually to the pooled fund and are reimbursed for program travel. A work plan is developed and approved annually by the Steering Committee. Work Plan 1 and Work Plan 2 were funded through TFP-5(093). That project number was closed out and Work Plan 3 - Work Plan 11 were funded through the FHWA number TPF-5(190). To view each work plan and project results, visit the program website at: http://www.nwpassage.info/about/workplan.php.

This new TPF number will fund Work Plan 13 as well as a the next few annual work plans.

Objectives

The vision of the North/West Passage (NWP) Corridor is to focus on developing effective methods for sharing, coordinating, and integrating traveler information and operational activities across state and provincial borders. The vision provides a framework to guide the states’ future projects in the corridor.

Scope of Work

MnDOT serves as the Program Administrator and a Steering Committee consists of one representative from each of the states that have financially contributed to the effort. The Steering Committee meets monthly or as necessary to provide overall program direction. Key elements include:

• Annual work plan development and initiation.

• Overseeing selected contractors that perform research, complete project tasks and prepare technical documents as outlined in each annual work plan.

Comments

Participants requested to contribute $25,000/year.
