Background

The mission of the U.S.-Canada Transportation Border Working Group (TBWG) is to facilitate the safe, secure, efficient, and environmentally responsible movement of people and goods across the Canada-U.S. border. FHWA and its Canadian counterpart, Transport Canada (TC), co-chair the group and lead coordination activities in the TBWG to address infrastructure needs, promote effective communication between the countries, and enhance surface transportation planning at the border. The TBWG brings together transportation and border agencies and other organizations to coordinate transportation planning, policy implementation, and the deployment of technology to enhance border infrastructure and operations. The TBWG will meet twice a year. Meetings will be held about every 6 months on a rotating basis between Canada and the US. The Coordinated Border Infrastructure (CBI) Program provides funds to northern and southern border States on a formula basis. The purpose of the CBI program is to improve the safe movement of motor vehicles at or across the land border between the U.S. and Canada and the U.S. and Mexico. A separate pooled fund study is being set up for the southern border states.

Objectives

Support border transportation facilitation through the U.S.-Canada Transportation Border Working Group.

Scope of Work

A draft work plan is attached to this solicitation notice.

Comments

The FHWA will administer the project, taking direction from a steering committee made up of any of the 11 northern border States (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Alaska) that choose to participate in this study.

States may choose to have their travel costs to TBWG activities included in the pooled fund.
