Expansion project at Emerson port of entry to be completed in the summer

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that the construction on the expansion project at the Emerson, Manitoba port of entry, which began in April 2017, is anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2018.

The project will increase CBSA's capacity to process more travellers and goods, thereby reducing border wait times. The commercial facility will be expanded to increase commercial inspection capacity; the traveller inspection garage will be expanded to add a bus processing facility

Three new lanes will be added to address both commercial and traveller volumes (one of these lanes will be dedicated for Free and Secure Trade members).

Finally, one booth will be converted to a modern bi-level booth that can serve both commercial and vehicle traffic.
