Peace Bridge traffic will reduce to two lanes once again beginning Monday until May 15 to allow for resumption of the $100 million rehabilitation project on the international span.
“This lane closure, like last year’s, is not expected to significantly impact traffic flow as U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Canada Border Services Agency will be staffing inspection booths appropriately,” said Tim Clutterbuck, chairman of the Peace Bridge Authority.
Bridge officials cite traffic studies by their consultants indicating that the two open lanes should be able to handle traffic in both directions during the off-peak winter months.
The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2019. During the fall and winter of 2018-2019, the cycle of a single lane closure will be repeated. All three lanes of the Peace Bridge will be open through the normally busy summer seasons
