July 16, 2012

Milltown, Maine - The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Milltown port of entry in Calais, Maine and the St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Milltown crossing will be temporarily unavailable to north and south bound traffic for emergency repairs to the Milltown railroad crossing. All passenger cars are instructed to use alternate ports of entry in the Calais-St. Stephen.

The Ferry Point port of entry is approximately one mile downstream and is available to all passenger vehicles and pedestrians. The International Avenue port of entry is approximately one mile 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. The Milltown port of entry is expected to be available on July 17 at 1600 hours.
