Release Date: 
January 15, 2014

Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.— U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced improvements made to the Sault Ste. Marie’s Port of Entry to help reduce wait times during peak traffic periods.

A new primary inspection booth has been installed in a lane initially intended for commercial buses. This fully functional lane will increase capacity of inbound vehicular traffic and help decrease wait times on the International Bridge.

“We are constantly working with our partners at MDOT to improve our operations at the port of entry.  The addition of a fully functional traffic lane will help facilitate legitimate travel and trade at the border,” stated Port Director Patrick Wilson.
