Lewiston, N.Y. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced today an upcoming change in NEXUS lane availability at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge for U.S. bound NEXUS traffic. These changes will be effective on Jan. 6, 2014.
The Lewiston-Queenston Bridge U.S. bound traffic will now have a designated NEXUS lane Monday through Friday 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Cross-border travelers are encouraged to participate in the NEXUS program. NEXUS allows pre-screened, low-risk travelers to proceed with little or no delay into the United States and Canada. Application forms are available on the Canada Border Services Agency website and travelers can apply online. Additionally, NEXUS information is available toll-free at 1-866-NEXUS 26 (1-866-639-8726).
The Port of Buffalo continuously monitors NEXUS lane usage and employs active lane management to meet traffic demands and ensure that NEXUS lanes have the shortest average wait time.
