New Nexus facility opening

A program that allows people to get over the U.S./Canadian border faster is moving to a new location.

A new Nexus facility opens this summer at Birch Bay Square in Custer.

Right now, people get their Nexus cards near the truck crossing in Blaine.

A Nexus card allows people to use a special lane at the border instead of waiting in line like everyone else.

The new building is bigger, will have a larger staff and has better parking.
