Ministry reviewing Highway 402 approach to Blue Water Bridge

Published on

Ontario’s Transportation Ministry is reviewing whether a decommissioned commercial vehicle inspection station east of Sarnia could be used to improve traffic safety on westbound Highway 402.

MPP Bob Bailey and Mayor Mike Bradley sent letters to the MTO in February letter offering suggestions on how to reduce collisions on approach to Sarnia and the Blue Water Bridge.

Bailey has received confirmation the ministry is considering a suggestion to allow transport truck drivers to stop and prepare their necessary border paperwork at the closed inspection facility near Camlachie Road.

Two serious truck accidents occurred on the approach last summer resulting in one death.
