The answer to your question is 'maybe.'  If you are stopped at an entry point and they run your criminal history or license, then the warrant may pop up and they could arrest you on the spot.  If they don't run you, then the warrant won't be exposed and you will be able to go back and forth without being arrested.  It would be better if you took care of the warrant before you-- so that you are not hindered by a warrant hitting you at an inconvient time.
