Dunseith Land Port of Entry
The Dunseith LPOE Inspection Facility is one of five inspection facilities that stretch along the central portion of North Dakota. The port inspects privately owned vehicles, (POVs), commercial vehicles and buses. In 2020, 24,109 POVs, 24,814 commercial trucks primary inspections occurred at the port for the year.
The port was constructed in 1961 and operates 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, to inspect commercial and noncommercial traffic in Rolette County, North Dakota. The current facility needs to be upgraded to improve and support the operations of federal inspection agencies. The project would provide a new main port building, commercial and noncommercial primary and secondary inspection areas, outbound inspection, safety for livestock inspections, and improved queuing for International Peace Garden patrons. Building design would meet the operational needs of the federal agencies present and aim to architecturally connect with the local community, climate and geography.
