Blue Water Bridge     PDF version of 2003 'Blue Water Bridge' (51 KB)

A one way trip over the bridge is US$1.75.  
Tip: have the correct change ready and you can use the automatic toll booths saving you time.

You need I.D. other than a driver's license to enter each country.  
A passport or other I.D. proving citizenship is needed.  
Typically entering the U.S. is more of an ordeal than entering Canada.  
If you are at a Port Huron hotel, you should allow one hour to cross the bridge to SYC.  
If bridge traffic is light, which is typical for a Saturday or Sunday morning, it should take you thirty minutes.

Blue Water Bridge

The Blue Water Brisge has its own Web site (www.bwba.org)
that has useful information including a Web cam and real-time traffic conditions.
