The International Mobility & Trade Corridor Project (IMTC), established in 1997, is "a U.S.-Canadian coalition of government and business entities that identifies and promotes improvements to mobility and security for the four border crossings between Whatcom County, Washington State and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Together, these four crossings are called the Cascade Gateway," its website states. "The goal of the International Mobility & Trade Corridor Project is to improve safety, mobility and security in the Cascade Gateway." [1]
