CanAm Highway passes through these states in the United States; Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, as well as the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. The international Can-Am Highway travels along U.S. Route 85 and Interstate 25, connecting Mexico to Canada through the United States. The CanAm highway in Canada comprises Saskatchewan Highways SK 35, Sk 39, Sk 6, Sk 3, and Sk 2. The route continues south in Mexico as Mexican Federal Highway 45, and north as SK 102 but are not labeled the CanAm highway.
HistoryNorth American Free Trade Agreement NAFTA super corridors are a concept of huge transportation corridors connecting Mexico, United States, and Canada. The CanAm highway was a concept begun in the 1920s. 
The CanAm matters so little to Saskatchewan highway planners that they've turned the most southern part of it within the province -- the Highway 35 link from Weyburn to the little U.S. border crossing at Oungre -- to gravel.
