Overton Corners / Lacolle – New York Highway 276 / Quebec Highway 221, Route 221
This is a small 2 lane border crossing mostly used by locals. Some travellers recommend using it when you see that the Champlain crossing at Intersate 87 / Autoroute 15 is congested. We have not seen recommendations to use it at all times given the 10-15 minutes added time to leave and return to the high speed freeways.
