CALAIS, MAINE—U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) Milltown port of entry will be temporarily closed beginning May 1, at 4:00 pm, due to the demolition and reconstruction of a new port of entry at this location. The inbound lane from Canada into the U.S. will be barricaded during this time until the end of the project.
The two alternate ports available for the public in the Calais - St. Stephen area are the Ferry Point and International Avenue ports of entry.
The Ferry Point port of entry is approximately one mile downstream and is available to passenger vehicles only. The International Avenue port of entry is approximately one mile up-stream and is available to both passenger vehicles and commercial trucks.
CBP thanks the traveling public for their patience and has taken steps to ensure that appropriate staff levels will be in place at the alternate ports to process the increase in traffic as expeditiously as possible. The Milltown port of entry is expected to be back in operation in the September/October timeframe.
