CALAIS, MAINE—U.S. Customs & Border Protection Milltown port of entry will resume operations Nov. 27, at 8:00 am. The port was temporarily closed on May 1, due to the demolition and reconstruction of a new facility at this location.
The Milltown port of entry posed safety and security concerns for both the CBP officers and the public following flood damage during the spring. The 1,150 square feet modernized facility was built on the same footprint as the previous facility, and includes the main port building, an inbound traffic inspection booth and enclosed canopy. Other site features include lighting, gates and other security measures.
The innovative design solutions optimize energy efficiency, water conservation, enhance indoor air quality and critical operational functions while meeting the needs of the traveling public.
CBP thanks the public for their patience during the construction process, and looks forward to resuming operations and expediting traffic next week.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
