Second Street WestLooking east from a parking lot of a customs firm just north of the U.S./Canada border in Coutts, Alberta. The chain-link fence separates the two countries. The area between the fence and the parking spaces serves as the buffer zone of the borderline. (See the view looking west from this point.)
Sweet Grass, Montana, is south of this point. (Here is a view from about a block south of the fence.) It’s an incorporated community located in Tooles County whose biggest landmark is the borderline and terminus of Interstate 15.
This border station is unusual in that both Canadian and American officials work from the same facility.
