UPDATED: Bridge will be closed both ways from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday

Sarnia Police Service has confirmed that the Blue Water Bridge WILL be closed between noon and 1 p.m. Saturday (Jan. 5).

In a separate advisory, Stan Korosec, the Blue Water Bridge Canada's vice president of operations, said the "Idle No More" demonstration is the reason for any delays (and now, as confirmed, closure).

Heavy traffic is expected in the area of Exmouth and Front Streets and Sarnia Police are asking drivers to be patient and understanding.

Anyone with travel plans should check the BWBC website. A web camera showing the approach to the toll area can be seen here.
