Peace Arch – U.S. Hwy I-5, BC Hwy 99

Peace Arch is the third busiest United States / Canadian border crossing for passenger auto traffic. About 3,500 cars pass through it on a slow day, and as many as 4,800 cars on a busy day. As a consequence, the wait time entering either the United States or Canada can reach 4 hours at various times of the day. The Blaine / Douglas or Lynden / Aldergrove crossings may be faster even if they are more out of your way.  Commercial vehicles are not allowed to use this port.
