The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Pacific Region is closing the Aldergrove border until Nov. 22 to certain users.
The Port of Entry is being shut down for much of this month to commerical vehicle traffic.
The closure applies to all medium and large commercial vehicles (i.e. tractor-trailers and semi-trailers) from Nov. 9 to Nov. 22 to accommodate construction upgrades.
During this period, medium and large commercial vehicles must reroute to the Pacific Highway Commercial crossing or the Abbotsford-Huntingdon Commercial crossing.
Commercial importers in small vehicles (automobiles and pick-up trucks) will be able to access the Aldergrove facility through regular traffic lanes during this time.
Full service resumes Nov. 23. Commercial operations will then operate seven days a week from 8 a.m. to midnight, including statutory holidays.
The $17.7 million upgrade will mean more lanes, expanded commercial facilities and a Nexus lane.
