PEMBINA, N.D. (AP) - The office of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Pembina is reminding travelers to Canada to carry the proper documentation and expect heavy traffic at the border starting Thursday.

Officials say border traffic volumes are expected to significantly increase through Monday for the observance of Thanksgiving in Canada and Columbus Day in the United States.

Travelers are being encouraged to cross during off-peak times, such as before 6 a.m. or after 3 p.m.

Authorities say travelers should carry an acceptable travel document such as a passport, a U.S. passport card, a trusted traveler card, a permanent resident card or an enhanced driver’s license. They say these documents can expedite entry into the United States and make future border crossings more efficient.
