Yet Another Step Towards A No Border Corporate Paradise

Bush administration allocates $66M to 'NAFTA highways'

"The Bush administration announced Monday it is granting $66.2 million to reduce congestion and improve freight flow on several so-called NAFTA highways.
The U.S. Department of Transportation is allocating the money so it can work with state and local governments and the private sector on six interstate highways, with projects including the addition of bypasses and trucks-only lanes.

Five of those highways connect to or run near the Mexican or Canadian borders."

Iwonder when they'll announce how that rebuilt I35 bridge in Minneapolis will be upgraded to NAFTA superhighway specifications, now that it's been conveniently demolished.

A little digging found this - it won't be just an ordinary bridge repair, it'll be a whoppingly expensive project:

Ah ha, you may be on to something. Unlimited funds for the WOT vs. pennies for the infrastructure means they can fund construction along slightly different priorities than the general welfare.
