  • Abstract:
    In 1994, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Mexico’s Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT)) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining the creation of the Joint Working Committee (JWC). Through the MOU, the JWC was charged with “analyzing, developing, and coordinating border transportation plans and programs reflecting the needs of both countries.” JWC consists of representatives from the four U.S. states and the six Mexican states along the international border and representatives from selected federal agencies from both the U.S. and Mexican governments, including the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of the U.S. DOT, Mexico’s SCT, the U.S. Department of State and Mexico’s Secretariat of Foreign Relations (Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores). In 1998, the JWC completed the Binational Border Transportation Planning & Programming Study (P&P Study). The P&P Study produced an inventory of transportation infrastructure along the U.S.-Mexico border and specified some of the “disconnects” that existed at that time. The Binational Border Transportation Infrastructure Needs Assessment Study (BINS) follows the JWC’s vision of developing and coordinating border transportation plans, and continues the work initiated in the P&P study. The purpose of BINS is to identify major transportation corridors in the border region, to develop a quantitative procedure to evaluate the needs of these corridors, and then, with input from the JWC, to identify transportation projects to meet the needs of the corridors as well as to identify possible funding sources. The BINS project was conducted in close coordination with the BINS Technical Committee, which is comprised of representatives from the ten border states as well as SCT and FHWA, under the guidance of the JWC.
