Busy roads & borders for last weekend of construction holiday

This weekend is the last of the construction holiday which means roads and border crossings are expected to be busier than usual.

Canada Border Services Agency says it is expecting high traffic this weekend and it will have extra staff members.

But spokesperson Dominique McNealey says people crossing should try to avoid the afternoons and evenings because those are the busiest times.

He says border wait times are posted at cbsa.gc.ca.

“Travelers can help us, help them get home more quickly by having their identification ready, making a list of their purchases while they were abroad and having receipts on hand,” he added.

Transport Quebec says because of the heavy traffic expected this weekend there won't be any major road closures.

But it says you should call 511 or check the Transport Quebec web site before leaving the house so you can be prepared for your drive.

It also wants to remind motorists to respect the speed limit.
