    MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin and Quebec Premier Pauline Marois say they’re implementing an electric vehicle charging corridor across the international boundary between the state and province.

    The two announced the agreement to install the stations Monday in Montreal.

    The corridor will initially link Burlington and Montreal with more than 20 charging stations along the 138-mile route.

    In addition to announcing the initial corridor, the agreement also envisions installing similar corridors on other cross-border routes, including between Magog and Sherbrooke in Quebec’s Eastern townships to St. Johnsbury in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

    The official opening of the corridor will take place this fall.
