Canadian, U.S. governments to announce plans for Detroit-Windsor bridge

OTTAWA - Transport Minister Lisa Raitt and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder are expected to make an announcement Wednesday about a new bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ont.

The Canadian government has agreed to finance the construction of the $2-billion bridge, which would open in 2020.

The final permit for the project was issued last month after a U.S. court rejected a request for an injunction filed by the private company that owns the existing Ambassador Bridge.

The next step involves securing funding for a U.S. customs facility, along with acquiring land on the American side.

Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun has fought the proposal for years, instead pushing for the building of an additional span to his private bridge.

Raitt's office says the minister will make the announcement at a news conference in Windsor at 10:30 a.m.
