The Peace Bridge between Buffalo and Fort Erie, Canada is undergoing a phase of construction expected to last six months. With traffic limited to one lane in each direction, delays aren’t expected as long as border agencies on both sides can maintain adequate staffing.

It took nearly a month, but one impact of sequestration has finally arrived, just in time for Easter weekend.

Along with an announced effort to crack down on trucks left idling at the Peace Bridge, the State Department of Environmental Conservation has also agreed to conduct air monitoring on Buffalo's West Side near the bridge's inspection plaza.

Air monitoring will begin within the next 45 days and will be conducted over a two-month period.  The latest data was collected in the late 1990s.
