BLAINE, Wash. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations is advising travelers that the Pacific Highway Port of Entry in Blaine, Washington, and Sumas Port of Entry in Sumas, Washington, will undergo construction around mid-October. Travelers should expect to encounter delays during construction.

The exact dates of construction are not known at this time. Once additional details are available, they will be distributed.
