Blue Water Bridge
Blue Water Bridge
The Blue Water Bridge spans the St. Clair River, and carries international traffic between Port Huron, Michigan, and Point Edward and Sarnia, Ontario. Located near the I-94 and I-69 interchange, the bridge forms a critical gateway linking Canada and the United States.
International Travel Information
MDOT's eastbound Blue Water Bridge (BWB) span has eliminated the use of cash as a means of payment at all toll booths. During the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, tolling operations no longer accepted cash as an acceptable use of payment. The decision to eliminate cash will remain permanent, and all commuters are encouraged to apply for the Edge Commuter Pass, which will allow ease of toll payment via an automated lane and offer the greatest discount for all users.
Additional information about the elimination of the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) token program was announced in November 2021. Any customers still in possession of tokens are encouraged to exchange them as soon as possible.
Duty Free Shopping
Duty free shopping is located prior to the bridge entrance and toll booths. You may use duty free shopping on your trip to Canada. Once you have entered the duty free area you must pay toll and cross the bridge into Canada, there are no exceptions.
Duty free is accessed off of Pine Grove Avenue (M-25) and not from the Blue Water Bridge.
Rules governing purchase of goods from duty free may be obtained at 810-987-7676.
