  • Abstract:
    The Washington state-–British Columbia international mobility and trade corridor (IMTC) ITS-CVO Border Crossing Deployment is allowing for the completion of a bi-national freight border crossing ITS system at the border, and is a follow-on effort to a multiyear border freight ITS deployment program funded by WSDOT, FHWA, and Transport Canada. However, while the ITS systems have now been fully deployed under this system, the physical infrastructure (i.e., additional lanes and revamped customs booth areas) on both sides that would allow for expedited clearance and travel time reductions to occur are still awaiting final funding decisions by WSDOT and Transport Canada. Therefore, it is not yet possible to measure the benefits of this system, since ITS-equipped trucks continue to have to wait in the same lanes and lines as non-ITS trucks. Based on this context, the SAIC-TranSys bi-national evaluation team, with the support of the FHWA Office of Freight Management and Operations and the ITS-JPO, decided in early 2002 to focus this evaluation effort on modeling the corridor benefits associated with future ITS dedicated truck lanes on both sides of the border, as well as associated trade and regulator benefits including weigh-in-motion data sharing and elimination of broker visits through enhanced systems. Here, the primary objective of this evaluation was to quantify, as much as possible, the relevant benefits and costs associated with the dedicated ITS truck lanes and associated corridor freight systems to IMTC stakeholders, and provide valuable data inputs and insight for future border crossing/corridor ITS technology programs. Based on the significant benefits and benefit-cost ratios, especially for the motor industry, that are highlighted in this Executive Summary, it is intended that the results of this report may serve as an input to the United States and Canadian effort to finalize funding for the infrastructure portions of the Dedicated ITS Truck Lanes concept in the near future.
