The crossing was permanently closed in 1975 when the Tyee Road border crossing was expanded.[5] The former Canada border station remains and has been refurbished.Boundary Bay BC former Canadian border station.jpgChopaka West Chopaka Road British Columbia Nighthawk West Chopaka Road Washington Canada periodically provided border services at this crossing on Chopaka Road on the foothills west of the Similkameen River until the US barricaded the road in 1964. The Canadian government still owns the property at the border. A branch of the Great Northern Railway once crossed the border at this location, but was abandoned in the late 1930s. The US stopped providing border inspections at this location around the time the railway ceased operations.[6] Bridesville Old Molson Road British Columbia Molson Old Railroad Road Washington Molson died a slow death as its mining and farming businesses dried up in the 1920s, and the Canadian National Railway abandoned its line at this crossing in 1936.[7] Molson's designation as a port of entry was revoked in 1941,[8] and the Customs and Immigration station in the town closed. This building still stands as part of the Molson Museums, showing elements of what is now a ghost town.Molson State Bank, Molson, WA, 1.jpgMyncaster Myncaster Road British Columbia Chesaw Bolster Road Washington The Canada port of entry supported both road and rail traffic, however, traffic on Bolster Road was light and the railroad ceased operations in 1937. Canada closed its port of entry closed that year, and the US ended its customs services around 1955. The border crossing opened again for one day on June 9, 1990.[9]Side of a False Front Building in Chesaw WA.jpgNewgate Dorr Road British Columbia Gateway Montana The border crossing at Gateway, Montana was located on the eastern banks of the Kootenay River approximately 5 miles west of the Roosville border crossing. Customs operations began around 1902 to inspect both vessel traffic on the lake and rail traffic on the adjacent Great Northern Railway branch. The US closed its Customs office in 1933 when rail service ended, with officers being relocated to the busier Roosville crossing. The railroad tracks were removed in 1936, and the US Post Office closed in 1950. Canada closed its Customs office in 1939. What was left of the town was inundated by water in 1975 with the completion of the Libby Dam which created Lake Koocanusa .[10] Flathead Flathead Rd British Columbia Trailcreek North Fork Rd Montana Border crossing adjacent to the Flathead River was established by Canada in 1914. In the 1970s, both the US and Canada constructed new border facilities to accommodate more regular recreation traffic. The crossing closed in 1996 due to flooding of the road just north of the border.[11] The road is gated at the border. Both the US and Canada border stations remain but are falling into disrepair.Trailcreek, MT abandoned border crossing - panoramio.jpgWhiskey Gap Emigrant Gap Road Alberta Emigrant Gap Emigrant Gap Road Montana The Canadian port was originally called Fareham. It opened in 1932, but closed in 1939 when the highway through Del Bonita opened.

Customs staff moved the office to Aden, Alberta without authorization, but Canada Customs decided that was a better location anyway.[13] Big Beaver Hwy 34 Saskatchewan Whitetail MT 511 Montana The Big Beaver - Whitetail border crossing was established in 1951, and traffic was never extensive here. In 2009, the US was planning to use Recovery Act funds to upgrade its Whitetail border station; however at the same time, Canada was planning to close the Big Beaver border station. CNN ran a story on how wasteful it would be to spend millions at this crossing. The reporter sat in the middle of the empty roadway during the report.[14] Canada permanently closed this crossing on April 1, 2011, making it a southbound-only crossing. The U.S. port of entry closed on January 26, 2013. Canada demolished the Big Beaver border station soon after it was closed. The US border station remains, but the roadway has been barricaded.Whitetail MT Border Station South View - panoramio.jpgBeaubier Saskatchewan Highway 707 Saskatchewan Westby North Westby Road Montana The port of Westby, Montana was established in 1919, and was revoked by Executive Order 9382 on September 23, 1943. Shortly before being designated a port of entry, the town of Westby moved a short distance from North Dakota into Montana to be closer to a new rail spur, and to be in a state that permitted the sale of alcohol.[15] Northgate Hwy 9 Saskatchewan Northgate ND 8 North Dakota This border crossing was established in 1913 to serve both highway and rail traffic. The US and Canadian Ports of Entry were abandoned when the highway was rebuilt about a half mile west of town in 1962.

The Canadian and US border stations were demolished, but the concrete slabs on which they stood remain.[17] All road traffic must now use the Pembina–Emerson Border Crossing .Emerson West Border Station 1964.jpgEmerson East PTH 75 Manitoba Noyes US 75 Minnesota Throughout the early 20th century, this was among the busiest U.S.-Canada border crossings. It was the point at which the Jefferson Highway intersected the international boundary and for a few years was adorned with an elaborate archway. Traffic waned with the 1964 opening of Interstate 29 two miles to the west. The crossing was closed by Canada in 2003 (where traffic was permitted southbound only) and then by the U.S. in 2006. All road traffic must now use the Pembina–Emerson Border Crossing .Noyes, Minnesota - Abandoned Border Crossing Station (25069374078).jpgPigeon River Old Border Rd (formerly Ontario Highway 61 ) Ontario Pigeon River County Route 89 (formerly MN 1 and US 61 ) Minnesota Formerly called Sextus City.

Brydges Artpark State Park .Queenston-Lewiston Bridge 1915a.jpg
Cornwall Highway 138 Ontario Massena NY 37 New York The Canadian port of entry on Cornwall Island was closed June 1, 2009, due to a disagreement between the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne and the Canada Border Services Agency regarding the arming of border services officers. A temporary port of entry was opened July 13, 2009, at the north end of the Seaway International Bridge north (high) span; it was used until the current "interim" port of entry was opened January 24, 2014.

As the company began building military weapons, the US established a border inspection station outside the company's south gate to inspect southbound traffic. This station also enabled US workers to legally return home after work without having to go through the North Troy border crossing, and it was not for use by the general public. Canada did not have a border station on the company's north gate. The SRC facility (and the Customs station) closed in 1980 when Bull was convicted of violating an arms embargo against South Africa .[20] Bull was assassinated in 1990. Mansonville Chemin du Pont-Couvert Quebec North Troy Douglas Road Vermont Also known as "Province Hill", Canada Customs closed this office around 1972.
