The Blue Water Bridge is
opening a dedicated lane and inspection booth for trucks traveling under
and Secure Trade program, allowing
them to bypass the lineup of non-FAST trucks when they cross to the Michigan
bridge is the second-busiest border crossing for commercial vehicle
traffic, handling approximately 6,000 trucks a day.
FAST offers expedited clearance to pre-authorized importers, carriers
and drivers through designated lanes of traffic. Approved carriers can use the
dedicated FAST lanes on Canadian Highway 402 as they approach the bridge and a
lane on the bridge itself leading to a primary inspection booth staffed by U.S.
FAST lanes and
inspection booths will also be available for trucks entering Canada. Trucks
must display a FAST placard issued by the Blue Water Bridge Authority or
Michigan Department of Transportation.
The Blue Water Bridge connects Port Huron, MI, which sits just north of
Detroit at the base of Lake Huron, with Sarina and Point Edward, Ontario,
Canada. It links Interstates 69 and 94 with Canada’s Highway 402.
