This Down East city is concerned about cutting operating hours at Canada’s border crossings

A small Washington County town is pushing for a plan to reduce the hours of operation at local Canadian border crossings, which they say could devastate families and the local economy.

According to US Customs and Border Protection, the agency is planning to reduce border crossing hours in Waynesboro from 24 hours to 12 hours — from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., about halfway between Calais and Halton.

Waynesboro selector Cheryl Long is concerned that the reduction in hours will make it harder for interconnected families on both sides of the border to see each other, and that the change will prompt more travelers from across Canada to cross the border through other ports. , which will damage the local economy.
