Border Policy Brief
Over the past 10 months, our Institute teamed with the Whatcom Council of Governments (WCOG) to conduct a survey of travelers crossing the Canada – U.S. border through the Cascade Gateway (i.e., the group of four ports-of-entry serving the I-5 corridor). The need for such a survey was identified by a binational forum called the International Mobility and Trade Corridor project (IMTC). From time to time, new questions arise about how to improve mobility through the border. Should a cross-border public transit route be developed? If so, from where to where? Should connector roads be built parallel to the border, allowing travelers to shift easily from one port to another in response to traffic?
