0 Avenue is a road in British Columbia straddling the Canada–United States border, stretching from Surrey to Abbotsford. The road runs parallel for many miles and is very close to the physical border between Canada and the United States.
The road begins four miles west of the Sumas-Abbotsford Border Crossing, and almost reaches the Pacific Ocean 18 miles away. Boundary Road on the US side runs for 1.5 miles along 0 Avenue and again one mile to the west, with many cameras watching the border, before the US road ends at the Lynden-Aldergrove Border Crossing. 0 Avenue continues west along the northern border of Peace Arch Historical State Park to Peace Arch Crossing. Small pedestrian bridges cross a trench on the border. At the end of 0 Avenue, the road turns north.
The road is a haven for smugglers, even though the border controls have tightened up since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The first known drug tunnel along the US-Canada border was found east of the Lynden-Aldergrove crossing in 2005. Some asylum seekers also tried to move to Canada from the US via the 0 Avenue.
