There are the four components of the Gordie Howe International Bridge project – the Canadian Port of Entry, the bridge, the US Port of Entry and the Michigan Interchange.
The Canadian Port of Entry
The Canadian Port of Entry will be situated on an approximately 53 hectare/130 acre site that will include such features as Canadian inbound border inspection facilities for both passenger and commercial vehicles, Canadian outbound inspection facilities, tolling operation for both the US-bound and Canada-bound traffic, and maintenance facilities. Once constructed, this port will be the largest Canadian port along the Canada-US border and one of the largest anywhere in North America.
The US Port of Entry
The US Port of Entry will be situated on an approximate 60 hectare/145 acres site that will include such features as US inbound border inspection facilities for both passenger and commercial vehicles, US outbound inspection facilities, and commercial exit control booths.
The Michigan Interchange will consist of the primary connecting ramps to and from the US Port of Entry and associated local road improvements required to fit the new ramps into the interstate system. The Michigan Interchange includes four new crossing road bridges, five new pedestrian bridges, four long bridges crossing the railway and connecting I-75 to the US Port of Entry, and service roads and local road improvements.
