Erie County Clerk Jacobs Issues Statement on Commercial Pre-Inspection Concept at Peace Bridge



Wednesday, October 10, 2012

I join my partners in Government in support of local efforts to designate the Peace Bridge border crossing as the pilot project for the pre-clearance of commercial truck at the Canadian Border. 

The Peace Bridge is the third busies commercial crossing with approximately 1.3 million trucks traversing the bridge annually. This pre-clearance project offers a creative opportunity to relieve congestion and speed the flow of trade and travel between the United States and Canada while ensuring the security of our borders.
