Plaza completed at New York-Ontario Queenston-Lewiston border crossing

QUEENSTON, ONT.

Work on the central plaza building at the Queenston-Lewiston International Bridge has been completed.

This $78-million project was the second phase of improvements to the Canadian Plaza and included the construction of a central building for Canada Border Services Agency and Canadian Food Inspection Agency functions, 10 passenger vehicle primary inspection booths and a separate bus-processing lane. These improvements will result in increased peak traffic capacity and faster processing times for travellers, strengthening trade and tourism between Canada and the U.S.

“Completion of the Queenston central plaza building on the northernmost of our three bridges will provide even more rapid border crossings for our cars, trucks and buses moving into Canada,” said Dr. Kenneth E. Loucks, chairman of the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission

Phase Two construction built on the $49-million Phase One redevelopment project undertaken and funded entirely by the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission. Phase One included the construction of a new elevated parking structure, a toll complex, a primary commercial customs processing facility, a retaining/security wall and a new maintenance facility.

The federal government contributed up to $62 million for the second phase of the project and the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission contributed $16 million.
