GSA Releases Dunseith Land Port of Entry Modernization Project Draft EA
Agency Seeks Public Input and Will Host Public Meetings

DUNSEITH, N.D. — The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), Rocky Mountain Region, developed a draft environmental assessment (Draft EA) for the Dunseith Land Port of Entry (LPOE) Modernization Project in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. The Dunseith LPOE is located on U.S. Route 281, approximately 12 miles north of the town of Dunseith, North Dakota. The Draft EA examines the environmental impacts from potential improvements at the Dunseith LPOE, including site expansion (up to 2.31 acres), demolition, and new construction. 

The purpose of the project is to modernize and expand the Dunseith LPOE. The project is needed to address space constraints, inefficient traffic flows, and increasing inspection demands. The Dunseith LPOE facilities were constructed in the 1960s and are currently outdated, too small, and served by an inefficient road design. The Draft EA is available for public review on the GSA Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Dunseith Land Port of Entry website.
