Interstate 29 and Interstate 35, described by the Ministry of Transportation for the province of Alberta as the "NAFTA superhighway".[1]

The NAFTA superhighway is a term sometimes used to refer to certain existing and proposed highways.[2][3][4] The beliefs associated with this appellation are associated with conspiracy theories regarding secret plans to undermine U.S. sovereignty.[5][6][7]

Those highways part of the NASCO Corridor, including Interstate 35, Interstate 29, and Interstate 94, along the CANAMEX Corridor are often referenced among the existing highways. The term is also sometimes used to describe planned, or proposed highways and supercorridors which connect the road systems of the three nations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) trade bloc (Canada, Mexico, and the United States).
