DHS/USCBP RIN: 1651-AA88 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Morses Line Border Crossing 

CBP officers are currently stationed at Morses Line, Vermont, a border crossing located within the port limits of the port of entry of Highgate Springs/Alburg, Vermont, to accept entries of merchandise, collect duties, and enforce the various provisions of the customs, navigation, and immigration laws. As an aging facility, the Morses Line border crossing no longer meets operational, safety, and technology standards. Extensive and costly upgrades would be required to bring the border crossing in line with modern requirements. Based on internal analyses, feedback from many individuals in the local community, and consultation with members of Congress, DHS is evaluating the potential closure of the Morses Line border crossing.
