Bloomfield Port of Entry Redevelopment

In support of the Canada Border Services Agency's Border Transformation initiative, the Land Border Crossing Project seeks to renovate or rebuild 24 land border ports of entry (POE) to modernize its custodial facilities. Included as part of this initiative, is the project at Bloomfield POE. It will consist of a prefabricated mobile unit that will be transported and installed at the location of the current port of entry. The new building will replace the current facility that is past its lifecycle, and will be rebuilt within the existing site footprint. The CBSA will use building and construction methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, contribute to sustainable development commitments by integrating climate change resilience into the design, construction, and operational aspects of the project and by reducing the environmental impact of structural construction materials using recycled and lower-carbon materials. The existing facility will be closed until the new mobile unit is operational.

This project will consist of two phases. Phase one will include the demolishon of the existing facility, site preparations, temporary connections, and construction of the accessible ramp and stairs. The mobile unit will then be delivered to the site and Border Services staff will begin operations. Phase two will be the construction of the utility and IT shed and permanent site hookups.

The Bloomfield POE is located at 185 Line Road in Bloomfield, New Brunswick. It is situated along the international boundary and across from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection - Bloomfield POE. The parking lot is an unpaved, gravel area that is typically re-graded each spring to repair any potholes and rutting. The site, which is approximately 12 kilometers west of the Saint John River, is immediately surrounded by forested area which borders agricultural and farming land. The nearest body of water, Williamstown Lake, is located approximately 4 kilometers to the east.
