CALAIS, Me. — Next Monday (Nov. 16) beginning at 9 a.m. EST, commercial vehicles crossing the border at Calais will be required to do so through a new port of entry.
According to a memo from the US Customs and Border Protection Agency, border crossings at Ferry Point (downtown) and Milltown in Calais will be closed to commercial truck traffic at that time.
Commercial traffic destined for the US will have to use a new, four-lane port of entry through St. Stephen. Commercial traffic entering Canada from the US will be required to use the new Canadian facility via the roundabout on US Route 1.
“Any commercial vehicle that arrives at either the Ferry Point or Milltown Crossing in Calais will be turned around and directed to the new facility,” CBP warns.
