Please join the Great Northern Corridor Coalition, the City of Moorhead, the North Dakota Trade Office and the Greater Fargo‐Moorhead Economic Development Corporation for Lunch at the Hjemkomst Center to enjoy a brief presentation on the Great Northern Corridor Coalition.

The Great Northern Corridor (GNC) stretches from Chicago to the ports on the Pacific Northwest Coast. This multimodal corridor consists of highways, rail and ports. It represents an east‐west artery of commerce that supports the movementof people and goods, bringing economic vitality to more than 38 million Americans across eight North Central and Pacific Northwestern states. This corridor includes thousands of manufacturers, ranchers, farmers, miners, timber and lumber businesses, energy companies and travelers that rely upon the multimodal transportation options that are provided by the Corridor. Recently, the GNC was identified at the federal level as an example of the importance of rail corridors in maintaining connectivity for both freight and passengers on the national rail network.

The GNCC represents a variety of rural and urban economies that all depend on the Corridor for freight transportation to regional, national, and international markets.

The GNC intersects counties along the Corridor with high concentrations of businesses, including both urban and rural areas. The GNC serves as an economic engine for its member states, its cities, regional economies, and the nation. This Corridor also provides a critical connection to move people that support many local businesses and enhances personal mobility.
