Porthill Land Port of Entry
Porthill LPOE is a limited-service port between Porthill, Idaho and eastern British Columbia, Canada. It primarily serves personal vehicles and buses, but also processes a limited number of pedestrians (mostly hikers) and permitted commercial truck traffic. It is relatively remote: 27 miles northwest of Bonners Ferry, ID. After 55 years of continuous operation, Porthill LPOE is no longer able to meet the operational needs of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The port expansion project will enhance its operational efficiency and capability, providing new, modern and energy efficient facilities to house port operations and processing functions.
