Customs: possible traffic delays at Quebec border
the associated press | July 21,2014
ST. ALBANS — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say there could be traffic delays at the Vermont-Canadian border during Quebec’s two-week “Construction Holiday.”
The annual holiday from July 20 through Aug. 2 could cause increased traffic since many residents from Quebec, including those not in the construction industry, go on vacation during this time.
Officials are reminding people seeking to cross to border to make sure they have an approved travel document such as a passport or enhanced driver’s license.
Travelers are encouraged to plan their trips during lighter traffic periods or to use less heavily traveled ports of entry. Up-to-date advisories and wait times can be found on the Customs and Border Protection website, www.cbp.gov.
