This website provides traveler information to assist with trip planning for the North/West Passage states (Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin).
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. In addition, the North/West Passage states are predominantly rural and face similar transportation issues related to traffic management, traveler information, and commercial vehicle operations. Since 2003 the North/West Passage states have been addressing these issues through coordinated, cross-border collaboration as Transportation Pooled Fund through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The overall vision of the North/West Passage Corridor is to focus on developing effective methods for sharing, coordinating, and integrating traveler information and operational activities across state and provincial borders. This website was developed to support the overall vision and goals of the North/West Passage. For more information about the North/West Passage Program visit: http://www.nwpassage.info
