International Avenue Border Crossing
First of all you should know that this crossing allows the passage of the international border between the cities of Calais, Maine and St. Stephen, New Brunswick, between Canada and the United States. This international bridge is relatively new since its passage opened in November 2009. There was no new crossing over this border between Canada and the United States for 42 years. The opening of this bridge was made with the purpose of reducing heavy traffic and the large barriers or delays that occurred at the nearest border crossings located in Milltown and Ferry Point.
Today all commercial vehicles that wish to pass through these border cities (Maine and New Brunswick) must use this crossing, so that if a commercial vehicle arrives at Ferry Point or Milltown it will be forced to turn around. Statistically it ranks as the eighth busiest commercial crossroads in the entire border area between the US and Canada.
Specifically in Maine, the bridge has connection to Route 9 which links to Interstate 95 in Bangor.
While on the New Brunswick side, the bridge is connected to a four-lane segment of Route 1.
The Canadian CBSA has called this port the St. Stephen 3rd Bridge and the US Customs calls it the International Avenue crossing. From New Brunswick the port is accessed via a four-lane highway through St. Stephen and from the United States, accessed by a roundabout on Route 1.
Either commercial or personal car traffic, the operating hours are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year except for Nexus lanes that are not usually open 24 hours a day, so you must be watch your work schedules.
