International Falls Land Port of Entry
The International Falls LPOE is located on Highway 53 at the foot of the International Bridge across the U.S./Canada border from Fort Frances, Ontario. The 20,419 gross-square-foot facility is the busiest and highest traffic volume port in Minnesota and currently processes more traffic than it was originally designed to accommodate. The project includes design and construction of new buildings in a site expansion and possible conversion of some existing buildings. The design will make a distinct architectural statement conducive to efficient travel, trade, and commerce. The new facility will also address traffic flow, port security, and inspections. The current, functionally-obsolete facilities house only CBP. The proposed new building construction will also house USDA.
