Limited numbers of international containers are trucked from Winnipeg and southern Manitoba to the BN in North Dakota and Minnesota.

Western Canadian grain is moved by truck to Plentywood, Montana for trans-shipment on the BN.

Figure 2-1b shows the IS highways, Figure 2-1c shows the NHS highways, and Figure 2-1d shows the NN highways in the western border region. The following table summarizes the mileage in each of the components of the U.S. road network under consideration in this case study.

2.2 Travel Time Comparisons

Figure 2-2 illustrates highway travel time contours from points in western Canada. It indicates that:

Truck travel times between western Canada and most of the U.S. west of the Ohio River and the southern section of the Mississippi River are less than travel times from western Canada to central Canada (Toronto) and east (Montreal and beyond).

Trucks leaving Winnipeg can be in Detroit, or Dallas, or Denver in less time than they can they can be in Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver. They can be at the Mexican border in an additional 7 hours of driving, and in Los Angeles or Monterey in an additional 12 to 15 hours.
