Transportation of Dangerous Goods

The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission requires a Dangerous Goods Pre-Notification Form to be completed by all vehicles transporting dangerous goods or hazardous materials on the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge for which dangerous goods or hazardous materials placards must be displayed.

If an Emergency Response Assistance Plan (ERAP) is required for the goods, a copy must be submitted at the time the “Dangerous Goods Pre-Notification Form" is submitted.


The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission reserves the right to prohibit the crossing of certain dangerous goods or hazardous materials. Including but not limited to:
a. Dangerous goods that are prohibited to move by road.
b. Class 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 explosives.
c. Class 7 Radioactive Materials, unless specifically permitted. For example, radioactive isotopes that are used in any scientific, medical, agricultural, commercial or industrial purpose that are packaged, marked and labeled as required by CFR49.
d. Weapons of war employing radioactive materials.

A vehicle that has been granted permission to cross displaying placards shall not cross unless the vehicle, it’s cargo, and it’s driver comply with the CFR49, The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations of Canada, and the laws of the province of Ontario and the State of New York with respect to the packaging, marking, labeling, documentation and training requirements.

 

Please submit all Dangerous Goods Pre-Notification forms no later than one (1) hour prior to anticipated crossing.

The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission

Niagara Falls' reputation as a natural world wonder and honeymoon capital of the planet beckons visitors from around the globe. 

But it is the bridges that actually bring most of them here. 

No other single factor contributes more to tourism growth - indeed the export trade economy overall - than the NFBC's three monumental linkages of concrete and steel. Niagara Falls crossings rank second only to Kennedy International as the busiest port of entry between the U.S. and Canada. If you are about to travel over Niagara's gorge, your vehicle will take one of about 7.2 million passages expected this year on NFBC bridges.
