Peace Bridge plaza fixes complete

FORT ERIE, Ont. – Government officials from both sides of the border celebrated the completion of the much-anticipated Peace Bridge Plaza improvements late last week.

The third busiest border crossing has a newly constructed laneway, a fifth primary inspection lane and booth for Canada-bound commercial vehicles, and a designated Vehicle and Cargo Inspection System (VACIS) area.

Canada’s Economic Action Plan contributed $1 million, through the Gateways and Border Crossings Fund, representing 50 percent of the total eligible costs.

The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority contributed the remaining $1 million.

"These improvements will enhance the efficiency and security of this important trade corridor, while contributing to Canada’s long-term economic prosperity, said Rob Nicholson, MP for Niagara Falls.
