Blaine, Wash. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection is announcing the temporary closure of one of three commercial vehicle entry lanes at the Pacific Highway Port of Entry.
Temporary closure of this lane is due to an oil spill caused by a leaking tanker truck. Clean up operations are currently on going and normal entry operations are expected to resume this afternoon.
The Pacific Highway Port of Entry continues to operate two commercial entry lanes but importers are advised to allow for an increased wait time and to plan accordingly.
The importing community is reminded that commercial entries bound for the United States may be directed to the Sumas Port of Entry via British Columbia Highway 11.
