Surrey, B.C., August 20, 2008 — In response to increased traffic congestion during construction at the Peace Arch Border Crossing, the Canada Border Services Agency announced today that effective immediately the NEXUS lanes at the Pacific Highway crossing will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
Hours of operation for the NEXUS lanes:
Northbound (into Canada)
Southbound (into the United States)
The NEXUS program expedites the border clearance process for pre-approved, low-risk travellers into Canada and the United States by allowing members to use designated lanes at the land border. Canada and the United States harmonized all three NEXUS programs (Air, Land and Marine) into one in December 2006 to further improve NEXUS service to the traveling public, while maintaining safety and security.
