Ferry Point, ME-The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Ferry Point port of entry in Calais, Maine will be temporarily closed to U.S. bound traffic at 7:00 a.m. on Oct. 17 to midnight on Oct. 21 due to a new paving project. All passenger cars are instructed to use alternate ports of entry during these five days.

The Milltown port of entry is approximately one mile upstream and is available to all passenger vehicles and pedestrians. The International Avenue port of entry is approximately two miles upstream and is available to all 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.
