Word is out that delays resulting in long lines at the border crossing at Blaine, Washington will begin next month.
Major construction is expected to commence Nov. 5, 2007 at the Peace Arch Canadian border crossing.
According to an article by Seattle Times travel reporter Kristin Jackson, half of the booths on the west side of the U.S. border station will be closed, resulting in even longer lines.
Now might be a good time to ride Amtrak if you've never taken the train -- it's my favorite way to get to Vancouver.
