“The staff, Board of Directors and International Authority of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) are saddened to learn of the passing of Gordie Howe. On behalf of WDBA, I offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

On May 14, 2015, the Governments of Canada and Michigan announced that the bridge between Windsor, Ontario, and Detroit, Michigan, will be named the Gordie Howe International Bridge. We are proud to be constructing the new bridge in his name. It is my sincere hope that this bridge will continue Mr. Hockey’s legacy of building extraordinary goodwill between these two countries.”
