Extended lines and delays northbound at US-Canada Border (Saturday)

WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — Motorists are experiencing lengthy delays due to long lines heading northbound through Whatcom County border crossings today, Saturday, May 28th.

Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) electronic signs on I-5 alerted motorists to expect delays of an hour-and-a-half to 2 hours at the Blaine crossings.

About 1:30pm, officials with the Blaine Police Department advised that northbound traffic was backed up on the Pacific Highway (SR543) from the border to Boblett Street and I-5 traffic was backed up to south of the D Street exit (milepost 276). Alternate routes were advised when possible.

Long lines waiting to make the crossings at Lynden and Sumas were visible on WSDOT traffic cameras.

    We live in blaine just off of the truck route. Haven’t had traffic this bad in over two years. Had to take all the back roads to get home.
