Main Cargo Lane at Peace Arch Crossing to Close
(Bellingham Herald – Caleb Hutton)
The main trucking lane at the Pacific Highway border crossing will close for about a month, starting Monday, Sept. 19.
Two other truck processing lanes will remain open, but southbound cargo wait times are expected to increase. The main lane will reopen Oct. 17.
A new processing booth is being built to speed up border crossing times. During the construction, Free and Secure Trade shipments also may be processed at the Lynden crossing between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily. The Sumas crossing is open to cargo shipments at all times.
