A major overhaul of the U.S. Customs Plaza at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge is officially underway. The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission broke ground on the $90 million modernization project on Tuesday.
Just as the busy travel season begins, two big bridges have major construction underway. The Peace Bridge continues building ramps to the Niagara section of the Thruway while work gets underway at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.
The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission has been pushing for major improvements at the U.S. end of the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge for years. Now, Washington is starting to clear the way for a $64 million rebuild and expansion.
