U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations Area Port of Sweetgrass announced that the return to summer hours at the Port of Wild Horse is delayed due to current travel restrictions as a result of COVID-19.

Normally, Wild Horse begins its summer hours schedule May 15. However, this year, the resumption of the summer hours will be delayed until further notice.

The port of Wild Horse will continue operating on the winter hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days per week, until further notice for passenger traffic which has been determined to be essential and permitted commercial vehicles.
