SUMAS, Wash. – Customs and Border Protection have made another change to the times the Nexus lane at the Sumas border crossing can be used.

As of this week, the Nexus lane is open an extra hour at Sumas from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m Monday through Friday.

The lane will be restricted from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for members of the Nexus program only.

The lane will then open to travelers with enhanced drivers licenses and other radio frequency ID documents after 11:00 a.m. and on the weekends from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Border officials say the change will allow more commuter traffic through the crossing during the peak travel times.
