Traffic changes coming to Aldergrove border crossing

Changes to the configuration of commercial and regular traffic lanes at the Aldergrove port of entry (POE) will start on Monday, Nov. 9.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) advises that changes to the configuration of commercial and regular traffic lanes at the Aldergrove port of entry (POE) will start on Monday, Nov. 9.

Commercial operations will cease temporarily, between Nov. 9 and 22, at the Aldergrove POE to accommodate current construction efforts.

All medium and large commercial vehicle operators will be required to use the following alternate ports: Pacific Highway Commercial crossing or the Abbotsford-Huntingdon (Sumas) Commercial crossing.

Commercial importers in small vehicles will be able to access the Aldergrove POE through regular traffic lanes.

Effective Nov. 9, the Aldergrove POE will be configured with the capacity of four regular traffic lanes.

Regular traffic lanes will be open from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week.

The CBSA Aldergrove commercial facility will resume operations on Monday, Nov. 23, with services open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to midnight, including statutory holidays.

The Washington State Department of Transportation will open two additional northbound lanes from the U.S. on State Route 539 as of Nov. 9.
