‘Nightmarish’ end-of-holiday traffic backups reported at Peace Bridge

Holiday traffic on the Peace Bridge entering the United States from Canada was backed up by more than an hour late Monday afternoon.

The afternoon supervisor described it as “a nightmare,” though typical for the end of a three-day holiday weekend. The wait time for trucks entering the U.S. from Canada via the Peace Bridge was 1½ hours and almost an hour for passenger vehicles. Similar delays were reported for traffic entering the U.S. on the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge, while a 20-minute delay was reported for trucks entering the U.S. over the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls.

No delays were reported on the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge.
