Michigan Advance Construction Groundbreaking

On July 17, 2018, Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) and Bridging North America (BridgingNA), along with the State of Michigan and the Government of Canada, celebrated that another significant milestone in the Gordie Howe International Bridge project has been reached with the start of Michigan advance construction.

Beginning in July 2018, BridgingNA, the Preferred Proponent identified to deliver the Gordie Howe International Bridge project, will begin advance construction at the US project sites, including at the bridge piers, on the lands that will become the US Port of Entry and at the Michigan Interchange.

To take advantage of the summer 2018 construction season, a separate contract has been signed between BridgingNA and WDBA.

In parallel to this work, Bridging North America and WDBA will continue to work toward finalizing the public-private partnership procurement process to reach Financial Close by the end of September. Once financial close is reached, Bridging North America will officially become WDBA’s private-sector partner.
