Release Date: 
June 20, 2016

ROUSES POINT, N.Y. – Inspection processing at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility at Rouses Point border crossing will resume normal operations on June 24. To avoid delays, CBP continues to recommend commercial and oversized vehicles, including vehicles towing a boat or trailer, use  alternate crossing points until construction finishes at Rouses Point.

“Normal processing will resume at the Rouses Point border crossing,” said Port Director Paul Mongillo. “We encourage commercial and oversized vehicles, including vehicles towing a boat or trailer, to use an alternate route to avoid any unnecessary delay while construction continues. We thank the public for their cooperation and understanding as we work to improve the facility at this location.”

Drivers of commercial vehicles can enter the U.S. at the Champlain port of entry further west by utilizing Quebec 202 west, to Route 15 south.

Oversized vehicles and vehicles with something in tow may use the Overton Corners and Champlain ports of entry.  Overton Corners is 1.5 miles away from Rouses Point and is the closest alternative. When approaching Rouses Point from Canada on Quebec 223, travelers can head west on Quebec 202, and then south on Quebec 221 to arrive at the Overton Corners port of entry.

CBP will provide an update when the construction project is complete.
