The Abbotsford-Huntingdon port of entry has been closed due to heavy flooding in Sumas, Washington.

Travellers are being directed towards other points of entry by the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA).

A portion of Highway 1 has also been closed between Sumas Way and Number 3 Road due to flooding.

Drivers are being told to use either the Pacific Highway, Aldergrove, or Douglas border crossings as alternate routes.

“The CBSA recognizes border disruptions affect both travellers and industry and we are working to restore normal border operations at this port of entry as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience while we get operations back on track,” said a statement from the CBSA.
