Peace Arch Land Port of Entry

This large, complex renovation project required extensive collaboration between JE Dunn, the General Services Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Federal Highway Administration, the Washington State Department of Transportation, the City of Blaine, and several agencies in Canada. The 10-acre site is bounded by Semiahoo Bay to the west and Peace Arch State Park and the Canadian border to the north. The renovated Peace Arch has 10 primary inspection lanes, and secondary inspection booths can process 54 vehicles at a time, which is double its previous capacity. A new Port building was constructed to replace the outgrown 30-year-old facility, and a new northbound bridge and highway carry traffic over the west end of the new port building and allow vehicular traffic for secondary inspections to flow beneath. The new facilities at Peace Arch are celebrated for their added efficiency and sustainability.
