New bridge opens between New Brunswick, U.S. – CBC News

A new border bridge opened between St. Stephen, N.B., and Calais, Maine, on Monday, with assurances from border officials that it will end long lineups.

The crossing, which was built mainly to speed up truck crossings over the St. Croix River, sprawls across almost 22 hectares of eastern Maine countryside.

There are three lanes to process commercial trucks with drive-through cargo-scanning technology, as well as six bays, allowing cargo to be unloaded, examined and reloaded quickly.
