Border mayors want feds to resolve bridge delays
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Niagara’s three border mayors plan to write a letter this week calling on the federal government to address the traffic backups that have been a frequent problem at bridges into Canada this summer.
“We’re all feeling the pain. It’s very frustrating,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati, adding counterpart mayors in the U.S. are equally frustrated.
Diodati said he has heard from people that it has taken them more than an hour to come back to Canada on Niagara’s bridges. He said even at the Whirlpool Bridge, which is a Nexus-only crossing, it took motorists half an hour to come into Canada Saturday.
