U.S.-bound travelers with NEXUS passes will be able to use them on weekday mornings when they cross from Canada at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge, beginning Monday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced.

The first NEXUS lane to be opened at Lewiston will be in operation two hours Monday through Friday, from 7 to 9 a.m. NEXUS service in Queenston for Canadian-bound travelers is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
