Blaine Surrey border crossing

The Blaine – Surrey border crossing (also called the Pacific Highway border crossing) links Blaine, Washington and Surrey, British Columbia. It is one of the busiest border crossings between the US and Canada. The Peace Arch border crossing is limited to passenger vehicles, so commercial vehicles are directed to pass through here. For this reason, it is often referred to as the Truck Crossing. Traffic is often lighter here compared to the Peace Arch border crossing despite the presence of both cars and trucks.
