new international bridge over the st. croix river opens today

The long-awaited new bridge over the St. Croix river at St. Stephen, New Brunswick and Calais, Maine opens today at 10:00 a.m. (Atlantic time). This is the first new border crossing between Canada and the United States in over 60 years. The two existing bridges will remain open - the Ferry Point bridge located downtown and the Milltown bridge located 1.5 miles up-river. The new bridge is a half mile above the Milltown bridge. All truck traffic has to take the new bridge but car traffic can choose any bridge; though for getting gas, restaurants and visiting the Chocolate Museum the downtown Ferry Point bridge is your best bet.
