Rouses Point Land Port of Entry
The new Rouses Point LPOE modernization replaces the existing LPOE which is located approximately one-half mile south of the border. The new LPOE will improve important border security, CBP operations, and CBP Officer safety requirements in a number of areas. This project will facilitate the development of one of only three international rail passenger crossing points in the U.S., and will be the only location that enables passenger inspections at the LPOE. Sustainability objectives include carefully designing the LPOE to minimally disturb the ecology of the regulated wetland on which it is situated, designing an all-electric net-zero energy-ready facility that includes geothermal heating and cooling, and using carbon sequestering mass-timber building materials.
