Border Wait Time (BWT) System

The BWT System located at the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron supports the overall goal to promote safe, secure and efficient border crossing operations that support economic and social prosperity of the State of Michigan, and mitigate the impact of international trade on local communities.

The Michigan to Canadian bound and Canadian to Michigan bound BWT systems utilize the same approach and technologies through one united effort. The current BWT system provides information to motorists via the MiDrive website and a mobile application. This system allows passenger and commercial drivers to maximize their time thus providing higher quality mobility. This also provides economic benefits to drivers not only in time saved but also fuel.
