The Detroit-Windsor Tunnel is closed following a bomb threat Thursday afternoon.
Windsor police said staff at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel received a phone call at about 12:30 p.m. local time indicating there was a bomb in the tunnel.
Sgt. Matthew D’Asti told CTV News Channel that no suspicious packages have been found and that both Windsor and Detroit police are currently investigating.
“Because this is an international crossing this is going to be a concern to both the City of Windsor and the City of Detroit,” he said.
The tunnel has been closed and traffic is being rerouting to neighboring border crossings.
D’Asti couldn’t say whether the bomb threat came from Canada or the U.S.
