Abstract

At the Cascade Gateway crossings that serve the I-5 corridor, vigorous initiatives aimed at improving border mobility have been underway for years. Strong cross-border forums exist, and through those forums a number of projects have been undertaken, resulting in changes to both inspection processes and infrastructure. Meanwhile, the Canada – U.S. federal ―Beyond the Border‖ (BTB) initiative was launched 14 months ago, and the first BTB Action Plan was unveiled in December 2011. As regional stakeholders evaluate the content of the BTB Action Plan they find much to applaud. However, they also notice aspects of initiatives included in the plan that might be at odds with regional assets and/ or realities.
