FORT ERIE, Ont. — Improvements to the Peace Bridge Plaza, including construction of a new primary inspection lane and booth for Canada-bound commercial vehicles, have been completed.
The occasion was marked today by local and national dignitaries.
“The Peace Bridge is the third busiest Canada-US commercial truck crossing and a key component for international trade with the United States,” said MP Rob Nicholson. “These improvements will enhance the efficiency and security of this important trade corridor, while contributing to Canada’s long-term economic prosperity.”
In addition to the new commercial vehicle inspection lane and booth, the upgrades also included a designated Vehicle and Cargo Inspection System (VACIS) area. The $2-million project was cost-shared between the feds and the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority.
