As a result of overland flooding and the closure of Manitoba Highway 256, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) temporarily closed the Lyleton border crossing (Highway 256) to all Canada-bound traffic until further notice.
Persons seeking entry into Canada should consider the following alternate crossings:
· Goodlands, MB, Highway 21 – 09:00 to 22:00
· Northgate, SK, Highway 9 – 08:00 to 21:00
To ensure their safety, travellers are advised to verify their travel plans prior to departure.
The CBSA will advise when the affected location resumes normal operations.
