Rouses Point / Lacolle – NY 11, NY 9B / QC 223, Route 223
This is a small crossing mostly used by locals. We have seen some recommendations to use this port when you see that the Champlain crossing at Interstate 87 / Autoroute 15 is congested, but it does take some time to return to high speed roadways, so you need to decide if the detour is worthwhile.
Before heading to the border, be sure to review our pages on preparing for customs and prohibited items.
