The Pinnacle Road–East Pinnacle Border Crossing connects the town of East Pinnacle, Quebec with the western portion of Richford, Vermont. A new US border station at this crossing was built in 2012, directly behind the old border station. For years, the old border station was heated using a solar water heating system.[1]

For many years, there were no border inspection services at this location. Finally in 1976, the US built a border inspection station. Canada built its border station in 1982. US station is open 24/7 while it is only open from 8AM to 4PM on the Canadian Side.
