Don't know. Canadian and US border agencies are now onsite at the work zone, since it is now an active border crossing

Whether workers require a passport (book/card) I don't know. Wouldn't shock me, tho. But if you stay on "your" side of the boundry line I wouldn't think a passport required, but I simply don't have the required knowledge to comment intelligently
Wouldn't it be more logical to treat it like the Peace Arch or the Haskell Free Library and Opera House?  As in, you can cross as much as you need within the work zone no questions asked, but must exit on the same side you entered.

This article I found states:
QuoteAs the bridge is technically now an international crossing, Canada Border Services Agency and United States Customs and Border Protection officials are now on the ground on site, clearing workers to do their jobs.

"Our team that's working on the bridge and that international zone has to go through the checkpoints where they're showing their documents just like you and I present at the border crossings that are in place now," Henderson said.

That would seem to suggest passports, but perhaps something less formal might be allowed as well.

It essentially says that the #AAA### series will likely be exhausted by the end of 2025 instead of 2027 as originally forecast. It also mentions that the new series will be ###AAA#.

You're entitled to an 'off day' every now and then.  That's why it is a 'best four of seven' series and not 'one and done'.

Funnily enough, that happened to me the week before this happened.  I assumed that it was just because that week was a small update consisting entirely of rainy day Qu├ębec photos, but maybe not.

I am pretty young, so I haven't seen as much as y'all have, but I do remember I-10 being only two lanes in Baton Rouge directly east out of the I-10/12 split (plus diagrammatic signs and no Clearview at the time). I also remember a time when the Sam Houston Parkway was not completely limited-access yet.
