Temporary Disruption to Vermont Ports

Release Date: 
August 8, 2013

ST. ALBANS, VT.—The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Highgate Springs, Vermont port of entry is experiencing system outages. While commercial traffic is still being processed at this port, delays are expected. All passenger cars and commercial vehicles are instructed to use alternate ports of entry in these areas or utilize the Champlain, N.Y. port of entry, while CBP works expeditiously with local, state and federal agencies to get the systems to full operational status.

Passenger traffic may utilize the Alburg or West Berkshire Stations, which are open 24/7. Also be advised the Ports of Morses Line and Alburg Springs lost connectivity as well, but have since become fully operational and Morses Line is experiencing delays.

CBP thanks the traveling public for their patience as we work through the disruption in service 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.
