10-months after the Declo westbound Port of Entry (POE) opened, the eastbound side is nearing completion. Staff moved in at the end of November to set up the building and test the electronic screening equipment before full operations begin. The hope is to have the newest port completely open by December 21, 2023.
The eastbound Declo port will have a state-of-the-art commercial registration office with a customer service window for appointments.
The Declo POE also has a Tire Anomaly Classification System (known as TAC) which screens tire conditions at highway speeds. Catching damaged tires before they blow out helps keep highway users safe.
The current Cotterel Port of Entry, eastbound location, will be decommissioned and only the rest area will remain.
