Crossing the border


We have 16 traffic cameras stationed at or near border crossings on I-5 and State Route 543 in Blaine, on Guide Meridian (State Route 539) in Lynden and on State Route 9 in Sumas.

We post current border wait times on our Web site so travelers can make informed decisions about where and when to travel.

Electronic traveler information signs are installed along I-5 north of Bellingham to provide drivers with current border wait times as they approach the border. This information will allow travelers to make route adjustments if necessary.

Use our statewide map of traffic cameras to check traffic conditions and congestion.
