CBP Announces Temporary Closure for Site Renovation
ALBURGH, VT – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will be temporarily suspending operations at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Noyan, Quebec/U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Alburgh, Vermont, for site renovation and upgrades. The port will be closed for 45 days beginning on September 15. The project will include renovations of facilities, installation of port hardening equipment and the resurfacing of the primary passenger and truck lanes.
This closure will ensure the safety of travelers who utilize the port of entry and employees who work there.
CBP operates two nearby border crossings as an alternative method to facilitate cross-border traffic.
- Highgate Springs Port of Entry – is approximately 25 miles away and operates 24/7.
- Champlain, NY Port of Entry – is approximately 15 miles away and operates 24/7.
“Upgrades and modernization to our ports of entry not only streamline efficiency but provide for improved service and safety during higher volume periods,” said Jennifer De La O, Boston Director of Field Operations. “Should you have any questions please contact Port Director, Nico J. Twardy, Highgate Springs, Vermont Port of Entry at (802) 868-2778.”
CBP's border security mission is led at ports of entry by CBP officers from the Office of Field Operations. CBP officers screen international travelers and cargo and search for illicit narcotics, unreported currency, weapons, counterfeit consumer goods, prohibited agriculture, and other illicit products that could potentially harm the American public, U.S. businesses, and our nation’s safety and economic vitality.
