The Canada-U.S. border crossing at Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle on Highway 15 has been reopened after a bomb threat Friday, confirmed Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The area was evacuated and closed off just after 9 a.m., including parts of Highway 15 south and Interstate 87.
The border crossing, the busiest in the province, received a menacing phone call that mentioned an explosive device.
“We encourage travellers to go through the adjacent border crossings,” Jacqueline Roby had told Global News.
Traffic was being rerouted to the Lacolle Route 211 and Mooers–Hemmingford crossings.
