Construction is set to begin this year!!

Gordie Howe International Bridge to start construction this year

It will be the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America

Actual construction will start later this year on one of the largest developments in the Detroit region. The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority named its preferred proponent today—Bridging North America—along with more details on the cable bridge.

The new bridge between Canada and the U.S. will have an A-shaped design, with six lanes of traffic (three each way) and bike lanes on the Detroit skyline side. It will be the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America, coming in at 853 meters.

The full project will also include ports of entry on both the Canada side and the U.S. side (which is basically Delray), and the I-75 connection. The U.S. Port of Entry will span 167 acres with 36 inspection booths. Last summer, the City announced a deal with MDOT to relocate families with homes in the pathway of the bridge. To date, MDO says they’ve acquired 95 percent of the parcels and 255 structures had been or would be demolished as of April 1, 2018. We explored Delray’s past and present earlier this year.
