Wallenda crowds will challenge border crossings

With an estimated crowd of 120,000 expected tonight in Niagara Falls, officials are preparing for heavy traffic on area roads and bridges.

Interest in Nik Wallenda's walk across the Niagara Gorge has prompted border officials to ask for the public's help. 

Heavy vehicle and pedestrian on the Rainbow Bridge will keep customs workers occupied, but the process can be expedited if travelers have proper documentation.

Approved paperwork, like a  passport, passport card or enhanced driver's license, must be shown before access into the United States will be granted.
