! Truck traffic through the Joliette Scale (on I-29 to and from Manitoba) is of the same quantity as traffic through the Beach Scale (on I-94 between North Dakota and Montana). The Fargo Scale (on I-94 between North Dakota and Minnesota) handles about twice the traffic as the Joliette and Beach Scales.

122,070 weighed in 1992 and 114,762 weighed in 1993. For 1994, the breakdown (the Total column includes empty trucks not

weighed) for each month is:

      Due to a bridge restriction at Noyes, heavily loaded trucks that otherwise, would use this crossing are forced to use the I-29 crossing at Pembina. This skews the traffic in favor of the northbound direction as more of the southbound traffic is loaded and must generally use the I-29 crossing.

      The combined effect of a bridge restriction problem in Emerson East and the movement of custom brokerage service to Emerson-Pembina has more or less eliminated the use of this crossing as of 1995. (The only reason to use this crossing is to avoid the Emerson Scale on Manitoba Route 200.)

  • -

    This crossing was considered “an excellent location for an intermodal hub facility” (pvii), but the recent movement of the brokerage business to Emerson challenges this. Rail traffic has remained stable in past 5 years;. The CN, CP, BN and SOO cross within 100 feet of each other. Southbound train traffic consists of lumber, fertilizer (urea and potash), propane, chemicals (sulphuric acid), furniture (piggyback), railcar axles (from Winnipeg), newsprint (Boise Cascade in Kenora to Fargo), grain (to Warren, Minnesota), wood pulp (to Grand Rapids, Michigan in box cars from

British Columbia),
