The Van Buren - St. Leonard Border Crossing is located at the Saint Leonard – Van Buren Bridge that connects the town of Van Buren, Maine with St. Leonard, New Brunswick on the Canada–United States border. During the 19th century, hand-pulled ferry service connected these two cities. In 2008, a flood of the Saint John River severely damaged the Van Buren border station.[1] A new facility was completed in 2013.
