As a means to slow the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus, Canada is closing its border to most foreigners beginning March 18, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday. U.S. citizens, however, are exempt.

Bridges bracing for busy weekend

Apr 6, 2012

Delays early this morning offer a reminder that Easter weekend is traditionally a busy time at the area's international crossings.

Last year, the Rainbow Bridge handled nearly 26,000 vehicles heading into the United States during the weekend.

Over 23,000 vehicles used the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge to enter Canada.

Bridge officials say peak traffic along the bridges tend to be from mid-afternoon into the evening while early mornings offer shorter waits.
