The federal government is upgrading the Emerson Border Crossing in southern Manitoba.

The $10 million announced Tuesday will fund infrastructure upgrades, including improvements to the Canada Border Services Agency inspection facility, aimed at reducing wait times and alleviating traffic congestion.

The Emerson crossing operates 24 hours per day and handled almost $19 billion in two-way trade in 2012, as well as over 300,000 passenger vehicles.

Funding for the upgrades is coming from the Gateways and Border Crossings Fund.
