New Windsor/Detroit Bridge Proposed
(2008-06-18)
(wgvu) - WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) - Canadian officials say they've selected
a location for a new bridge across the Detroit River to ease
traffic congestion at one of North America's busiest border
crossings.
Canadian participants in the Detroit River International
Crossing study recommend Wednesday the bridge between Detroit and
Windsor, Ontario, should be near the Brighton Beach area in western
Windsor.
On the U.S. side, public meetings still are scheduled. A
decision is expected to be announced about a possible location in
the fall.
The Detroit International Bridge Co. also has been working on
plans to build a second bridge over the Detroit River. The company
says its 78-year-old Ambassador Bridge costs too much to maintain.
