This site highlights petroleum reduction and sustainable transportation solutions on the I-5/Hwy 99 corridor from British Columbia, Canada to Baja California, Mexico “BC to BC.” The multi-state effort aims to promote high-efficiency and cleaner fuel vehicles including Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Biodiesel, Hydrogen Fuel Cell, and Plug-In Electric Vehicles.
West Coast Shines on National Clean Corridors Map
You may start seeing new blue “Alternative Fuels Corridor” signs along major highways in California, Oregon and Washington. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) created the nation’s first alternative fuel corridors program and the three West Coast states were successful in receiving several “signage-ready” designations. The entire 1,350-mile Interstate 5 (I-5)/Highway 99 corridor is recognized as an Electric Vehicle Charging Corridor, the longest of its type in the nation. Sections of I-5 were also designated for having networks of refueling infrastructure for Hydrogen, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG or Propane).
