Peace Bridge enacts load limits through spring

TORONTO — The Peace Bridge linking Fort Erie, Ont. and Buffalo, N.Y. will begin replacing expansion joints on the bridge deck starting April 10.

The Peace Bridge Authority is enacting load restrictions until construction is completed, around mid-June.

From April 10 through May 8, the Peace Bridge will be restricted to loads 10′ and under, from 6 am to 2 pm. Starting May 9, the bridge deck will be limited to one lane in each direction 24 hours a day.

All loads over 10′ wide and all loads operating in excess of 130,000 pounds on unapproved configurations will be prohibited from crossing for the duration of the work.

Vehicle configurations that have been operating across the Peace Bridge in excess of 130,000 lbs in the course of normal business in the past two years can be considered “approved configurations.” They include four, five and six axle trailers as well as B-train configurations moving steel as well as those pre-approved configurations submitted by heavy haul carriers to the bridge in the past.
