Plans for a new Peace Bridge have been officially abandoned.  The Federal Highway Administration officially canceled an environmental review of the proposal Tuesday, bringing an end to the latest plan to build a new Peace Bridge between the U.S. and Canada.  The plan would have also created larger inspection plazas on the Buffalo side of the Canadian border.  

President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced last month an agreement promising to try and alleviate traffic congestion from commercial trucks at U.S.-Canada border crossings.
