Alcan Land Port of Entry
The Alcan LPOE is the only year-round, full service, 24-hour port of entry serving personal vehicles and commercial truck traffic between Yukon Territory, Canada and Interior Alaska. It’s situated in a remote location along the Alaska Highway; a majority of the adjacent area is undeveloped forest, wetlands and tundra. Established in 1972 the facility is now over 50 years old and in urgent need of replacement. The project includes replacing the existing port operational facilities, housing, and community complexes with modern facilities that will meet U.S. Customs and Border Protection and GSA operational needs for decades to come.

We received $3.4 billion to invest in our nation’s infrastructure and competitiveness. The law provides funding for LPOE modernization projects that will create new good-paying jobs, bolster safety and security, and make our economy more resilient to supply chain challenges — all while serving as models for sustainability and innovation.
We will increase energy and water efficiency (including renewable energy and fossil fuel free measures), adhere to sustainable design principles, and minimize climate risk liabilities above the minimum performance criteria in a manner that is life cycle cost-effective.

The Alcan LPOE is the only land crossing between Interior Alaska and Canada that operates year-round. Before 2014, U.S. Customs and Border Protection processed about 1,000 trucks yearly, but in more recent years, it’s been over 6,000. These commercial trucks bring crucial goods to Interior Alaskans.
