SAULT STE MARIE, Mich. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Field Operations is upgrading the operational functionality of their primary inspection booths starting May 23, 2016: this project may have an impact on the traveling public.
The construction will take place during the evening and early morning hours and CBP Field Operations is asking that travelers pay close attention to both the electronic signage and stop lights.
“This project enhances the safety of our officers and will also help improve inspection times at the primary booths,” stated Patrick Wilson, Port Director. “This project will improve the sight lines for the officers and will allow them to more accurately enter information needed for their inspection processes.”
The project is slated to be completed by May 27, 2016.
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.
