BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - New York State's ongoing dispute with the Public Bridge Authority, which oversees the Peace Bridge, is not stalling efforts to have all trucks inspected on the Canadian side.
Right now, trucks crossing the bridge are often backed-up in the Buffalo plaza, waiting to be inspected. But there are 20 acres of land available on the Canadian side and work is underway to have trucks undergo a primary inspection there by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.
The Public Bridge Authority has authorized half a million dollars toward the pilot project. Construction on the initial booths could begin in a matter of months.
If the pilot project is successful, as many as 12 new truck booths would be constructed on the Canadian side.
