Northbound Gates No Longer Locked Early

Nov 30, 2018 Issues: Foreign Affairs, Transportation

Following calls from the office of Congressman Collin C. Peterson (D-Minn.) and Roseau Mayor Jeff Pelowski, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that northbound gates will remain open at Roseau and Pinecreek during Canada Border Security Agency service hours.

“I’m glad this situation was worked out, but we still have the underlying issue of reducing U.S. service hours in Lancaster and Roseau. I will continue efforts to keep these ports open longer so U.S. and Canadian travelers won’t have to rush and beat the clock each and every night,” Peterson said.

The announcement followed a few nights of confusion where travelers discovered locked gates for northbound traffic heading into Canada, even though CBSA was open and ready to process incoming vehicles.
