Edmundston-Madawaska Bridge Border Crossing – Madawaska / Edmundston – US Highway 1, Bridge Street / New Brunswick 120, Des Veterans Promenade
This is a heavily used border crossing which ranks in the top 25% of all U.S. / Canadian ports. It is a connector to Hwy 2 which is part of the Trans-Canada Highway. The Edmundston-Madawaska Bridge is well past its prime and does not handle the daily flow of commercial traffic very well. Studies are underway to determine if new facilities should be built.
