This crossing has changed many times over the years. This looks to be pretty much in sync with what we describe on the Northern Tier Section 10, map 128 narratives. If you discover otherwise in your crossing, please send updated information to either cartographyATadventurecyclingDOTorg or via the online correction form at: https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/map-correction-form/

Thanks,
Jennifer

This past Sunday, 5/30, I returned from Canada on the Lewiston-Queenston bridge and it is exactly as described, except I would change the wording about the orange cones to the road to the right of the currency exchange in the picture.  Into Canada, use the lane with the least traffic until the end of the bridge on the Canadian side.  The right lane is for trucks, buses and cars with NEXUS,  bikers with NEXUS cards can use this lane when open, I used it several times already this year.  There is currently on NEXUS lane into the US on this bridge.

Can a cyclist move ahead of cars to front at the US border after crossing bridge or do you wait at end of line ?

As a cyclist crossing with cars you wait in line with the cars.  The only exception is if you have a NEXUS card and there is a NEXUS lane.
