Abbotsford-Sumas Border Improvement Project Phase II
Status: Completed in 2003 — Construction Project
Resulting from Phase I of the study, construction was completed on a new commercial vehicle staging area off B.C. Highway 11. The B.C. Ministry of Transportation worked closely with Canada Border Services Agency, U.S. Customs & Border Protection, the City of Abbotsford, and the Huntingdon Duty Free store to align the new staging area.
The new staging area includes parking space for trucks to eliminate long southbound queues caused by commercial vehicles parked in the roadway. It also realigns the commercial vehicle entry into the U.S. port-of-entry, separating commercial and passenger vehicles at the intersection of B.C. Highway 11 and 4th Avenue.
