Trout River Land Port of Entry
The Trout River LPOE was constructed in 1931 in response to prohibition era enforcement activities and the growing prominence of the automobile. It is a historic and visual landmark that helps define the Hamlet of Trout River, New York. This facility has a unique relationship to the Canadian Border Services inspection station, as it is also a protected historic cultural resource. Project objectives include preservation of the existing historic structure while modernizing it to better support contemporary CBP operations, and constructing an addition to house an expanded CBP program that can no longer be supported by the existing structure alone. Vehicle inspection facilities will be improved to address current operational and CBP officer safety deficiencies.
