New technology tracks U.S. and Canada border wait times in the Niagara Region
The governments of Canada and the United States announced the installation of new technology at the Peace and Queenston-Lewiston Bridges to help people cross the border faster.
New and advanced sensor technology near customs plazas and approach roads measure and report delays, and relay this information to travellers. People will be able to plan their routes better, time their crossing, and select the bridge with the best wait-times.
This new system is expected to reduce border wait times for the travelling public and commercial carriers by up to one million hours per year. Up-to-date information on the Peace Bridge and Queenston-Lewiston Bridge websites will help drivers to plan and save money on fuel by avoiding congestion.
This project was completed in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Canada Border Services Agency and Transport Canada.
Information on waiting times is available on the following sites:
