Peace Bridge spokesman Lucian Greco said U.S. staff was doing everything they could to manage the long lines of waiting trucks. Operations on the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge also were hampered.
Brent Gallagher, spokesman for the Niagara Falls Bridge Authority, said that for part of the day, the line of waiting trucks snaked more than a mile from the bridge. Passenger vehicles did not face the same major delays on the Buffalo-area bridges to Canada on the first day of the strike by the Public Service Alliance of Canada, which began at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.
According the Toronto Star, the strike continued into Wednesday. The U.S. Customs web site reported minimal delays at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
