Gov. Rick Snyder’s statement on announcement of Preferred Proponent for the Gordie Howe International Bridge

LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today issued the following statement after the announcement of the Preferred Proponent for the Gordie Howe International Bridge.

“The Gordie Howe International Bridge project at the Detroit-Windsor crossing will be a towering symbol of the peace and prosperity shared by Michigan and Canada, our most vital trading partner. Today’s naming of the team that will build the six-lane span easily ranks among this historic project’s biggest milestones,” said Gov. Rick Snyder. “The announcement means that the complicated and competitive procurement process spearheaded by Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority has worked. Significant advanced construction on the bridge can now begin this summer, marking another critical milestone for this vital trade corridor.

“The Gordie Howe International Bridge, financed by Canada, will create thousands of jobs in Michigan. It greatly enhances our supply chain and will create economic opportunities and growth in ways many people have not yet fully realized. The Canadians and Americans who have been working side by side on this project are proving once again that, together, we can achieve great things for everyone.”
