by glicko

Creston is one of the major junction points on the Crowsnest Highway (Highway 3), BC's main southern trunk road. From the USA, Idaho's State Route 1 crosses into Canada at Porthill. Just across the line in Rykerts, BC, the road becomes Highway 21 -- Creston is 14 km (9 miles) north. Also close (64 km southeast via Highway 3 and 95) is the more major Eastport/Kingsgate port of entry on US-95 (which becomes BC-95). Proceeding north along the east side of the Kootenay River is Highway 3A which follows the shore of Kootenay Lake 79 km (50 miles) to the Ministry of Transportation ferry dock at Kootenay Bay. This boat take you to Balfour and then either Nelson (via Hwy 3A) or Kaslo (via Hwy 31)
