Long delays to enter U.S. on Peace Bridge, Lewiston-Queenston span

BUFFALO -- Wait times to cross the Peace Bridge from Canada into the United States have reached nearly two hours at times this afternoon.

The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority reported a wait of 1 hour, 55 minutes for cars heading into the United States on the Peace Bridge at 3:40 p.m.

Wait times at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge entering the United States were 1 hour, 10 minutes at 3:40 p.m. The delay at the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls was 25 minutes.

Traffic picked up steadily ahead of the 4 p.m. start of the World Juniors match-up between Canada and the Czech Republic at HSBC Arena.

The authority reported no delays heading into Canada, but that is likely to change later this evening when the Canadian game wraps up.
