Travelers who use a border crossing in northern New York are being advised to choose an alternate crossing point as a construction project gets underway.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection says a canopy reconstruction project began Wednesday at the inspection facility at the border crossing in Rouses Point, on the Canadian border in Clinton County.
Customs officials say the project is expected to last through July. The agency says travelers entering the U.S. can expect crossing delays and occasional temporary closures of the border crossing, located near Lake Champlain’s western shore.
Officials say traffic entering the U.S. at Rouses Point from Quebec will be diverted to a temporary inspection booth for the next several months.
Travelers are being encouraged to use the nearby Overton Corners and Champlain border crossings.
