Funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the announcement is part of President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda

BOSTON – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has awarded a contract for architectural and engineering services for the Land Port of Entry Project at Beebe Plain, Vermont. 

Funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, GSA awarded the $444,923 contract to Marble Fairbanks, a small business, to provide concept development for the project. 

GSA’s goals for the Beebe Plain port include providing a long-lasting and durable port which is sustainable and climate resilient, with low maintenance and operating costs. 

The project will assist the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection carry out its mission at the international border crossing between Beebe Plain, Vermont, and Stanstead, Quebec (Canada). 

The project will renovate the existing port with new state-of-the-art upgrades that will include the latest technologies and equipment to facilitate enhanced traffic management and inspection. 

This project will also improve economic, cultural and familial connections. The people who live along the border depend on this cross-border community engagement, often crossing through the port daily for jobs and mutual aid.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes a total of $3.4 billion for GSA to build and modernize land ports of entry on the country’s northern and southern borders. The investments will improve commerce and trade, create good-paying construction jobs, and incorporate new and innovative sustainability features.
