Whirlpool Bridge closed until May 5th

A reminder to NEXUS users - the Whirlpool Bridge has now closed for demolition work on the US side.

Crews will be removing about two miles of the former Robert Moses Parkway, now known as the Niagara Scenic Parkway.

The work begins today and is expected to last until May 5th.

To help ease conjestion during demolition, NEXUS lane hours are being extended at the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Meanwhile, the Rainbow Bridge will offer a temporary NEXUS lane from 7 a.m until 11 p.m.
