NB Border Crossing Reducing Hours

A New Brunswick border crossing with the US near St. Stephen will no longer be open 24 hours a day. Starting August 20th, the Milltown Bridge crossing will be closed at 11pm each day and remain closed overnight until reopening at 7am. The move mirrors similar reductions in service hours on the US side of the border. The Milltown crossing was seldomly used at night and the crossing in nearby St. Stephen remains open 24 hours. The closure has sparked some concern as fire departments on both sides of the border use the Milltown bridge to respond to emergencies.
