THE CORRIDOR

Every day, Americans across this system work together to produce and deliver vital products for their neighbors and the world...

Overview

Stretching from Chicago to ports on the Pacific Northwest, the Great Northern Corridor is an east-west artery of commerce that supports the economic vitality of more than 38 million Americans across eight North Central and Pacific Northwestern states. Thousands of manufacturers, ranchers, farmers, miners, timber and lumber businesses and energy producers rely on the Corridor’s multimodal transportation options.

The unifying thread and primary focus of this Corridor is the rail network stretching from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Northwest, and other logistics infrastructure such as highways, ports, and terminals. Every day, Americans across this system work together to produce and deliver vital products for their neighbors and the world, such as factory workers in Illinois making tractors for farmers in Montana to grow wheat that longshoremen in Washington load onto ships for ultimate delivery to dinner tables in Japan.
