Canadian truckers, protesting COVID-19 restrictions, shut down the busy Detroit-Windsor border for hours.

The Ambassador Bridge was closed at about 8 p.m., leaving thousands of truckers stranded on Detroit roads, Fox 2 in Detroit reported. The television news said the U.S.-bound traffic on the bridge was reopened early Tuesday morning.

Customs and Border Protection reported there were no delays restricting travel across the bridge.
