Holidays and special events can overwhelm border crossing stations. This calendar shows you the days that may have significantly higher traffic delays at the border and on the roads in general. Be aware that traffic can also be heavier than usual on days before and after holidays. If the holiday is adjacent to a weekend, the entire weekend will likely have very heavy traffic. If you must cross the border on these days, think about arriving early in the day, or perhaps use a lower volume port that may be less affected.
If you are aware of an event that will impact border crossing traffic please email us with this information so we can include it on this calendar.
