Land ports of entry and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
The United States has 167 land ports of entry, also known as border stations. These facilities control entry into or departure from the U.S. for persons or materials. U.S. Customs and Border Protection and other federal inspection agencies operate the LPOEs.
We coordinate long-range space requirements, budget requests, and project approval with our partners at CBP, Department of Transportation, Department of State, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Fish and Wildlife Service, Food and Drug Administration, and many other federal, state, and local entities.
Through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we are modernizing 20 land ports of entry along the northern border and six land ports of entry along the southern border. The modernized LPOEs will benefit the supply chain, labor market, security, climate change resilience, human experience, community livability, and diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility.
