On January 22 and 23, 2018, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, visited Windsor and Michigan for an update on the Gordie Howe International Bridge project. As part of his visit, Minister Sohi toured the future Canadian and US Ports of Entry where he had the opportunity to see first-hand the $350 million invested to date in preparatory activities readying the sites for significant construction later this year.

While in town, Minister Sohi met with key regional stakeholders, government officials and project staff who were able to share valuable input and project views. He was also a guest of Governor Rick Snyder at his 2018 State of the State address.

2018 will be a pivotal year for the Gordie Howe International Bridge project with many significant milestones. WDBA looks forward to hosting Minister Sohi again in the future as the largest infrastructure project along the Canada-United States border moves forward.
