BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Another step toward reducing traffic congestion at the international Peace Bridge has been completed with the renovation of the U.S. Customs commercial building.

The $24 million project is one of several projects included in a 2013 agreement between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer. The agreement outlined $150 million in improvements to smooth the way at one of the busiest crossings for both passenger and commercial vehicles along the northern border.

The newly renovated Customs building houses several federal agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Agriculture. Officials say the redesign will improve efficiency.
