Reminder: Blue Water Bridge Rehabilitation Project Begins July 5

The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) is reminding carriers that the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) has announced that rehabilitation work will begin at the Blue Water Bridge, with the U.S. bound span being closed beginning July 5, 2023 to October 5, 2023.

To minimize impact and disruption, the Canada-bound span will become bi-directional and remain operational during construction. The rehabilitation work is not expected to have significant traffic disruptions to travellers or to the local community.

Both the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recognize the importance of prioritizing commercial traffic and ensuring a steady stream of cross-border goods movement, and will work to ensure as many lanes are open as possible to maintain optimal service levels.

Reduced lane access during the project will prevent the availability of a dedicated lane for NEXUS and F.A.S.T. motorists, as well as for buses. Wide loads will be restricted to less than 3.35 metres (11 ft).

For all the details please see the notice from FBCL here.
