The existing Rouses Point Land Port of Entry (LPOE) is a 2-story building constructed in 1933 in a Georgian Revival style. It is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The Rouses Point LPOE connects the United States town of Rouses Point, New York, and the Canadian town of Lacolle, Quebec. The port processes various forms of cross-border including: vehicular traffic; pedestrian traffic; marine boat traffic (Lake Champlain); Amtrak passenger train traffic; and freight train traffic.
The project will allow for the more effective implementation of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) mission, and includes the construction of new inspection lanes and a rail inspection platform.
The existing Rouses Point LPOE does not meet current land port design standards or CBP's operational requirements. The proposed project provides a unified LPOE for several CBP program functions, including its port operations as well as the Trusted Traveler and Rail Inspection programs.
The existing Trout River Land Port of Entry (LPOE) is a 2-story building constructed in 1932 in a Georgian Revival style. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Trout River LPOE connects Constable, New York, with Athelstan, Quebec.
The project proposes to provide a new one story 14,405 gross square feet building. The new LPOE includes 2 inbound inspection lanes, 1 primary non-commercial privately-owned vehicle inspection booth, 1 commercial vehicle inspection booth and an outbound inspection canopy.
The proposed project reconfigures, expands, and modernizes the Trout River LPOE, to meet current land port design standards and CBP operational requirements.
