Churubusco / Franklin – U.S. NY 189 / Canadian QC 209
This is a very small border crossing with limited hours of operation. For that reason, Canadian officials closed their side of this port. U.S. officials decided against closure, so this is now a “one-way” port that allows access into the U.S., but not back into Canada. The nearest alternative port with two-way access is Herdman.
Before heading to the border, be sure to review our pages on preparing for customs and prohibited items.
