Update of New Brunswick/Maine border crossings underway
August 8, 2022 By CTV News
The first update in 27 years at one of the land border crossings between St. Stephen, N.B. and Calais, Maine, is expected to create traffic delays, especially during peak travel times.
Only one inspection booth is currently operating on the Canadian side of the Ferry Point Bridge and it will remain that way until February 2023, when construction is set to finish.
The Canadian crossing’s three former booths will become two modern booths upon completion, according to the Canadian Border Services Agency. The agency is advising travellers to consider using two other crossings in the area.
The construction is the latest in a string of recent developments at New Brunswick and Maine border crossings.
Construction of a brand new international bridge between Edmundston, N.B. and Madawaska, Maine is ongoing. Traffic is expected on the new bridge by the end of 2023.
