The Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport, issued today this statement on the request for tender issued by the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) for Early Works activities related to the new Gordie Howe International Bridge.

“I would like to congratulate the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority on issuing its tender for the construction of a perimeter access road, the relocation of utilities and site preparation related to the Canadian inspection plaza for the new Gordie Howe International Bridge.

“These Early Works are essential to prepare the Canadian inspection plaza site for the work to be undertaken by the eventual private-sector partner which will be identified through a separate procurement process.

“This contract will result in significant economic stimulus and jobs for the region.

“Since August 2014, when I announced the formal launch of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, much work has been completed by WDBA to move this vitally-needed project ahead. Today’s announcement is a demonstration of this project’s forward momentum and our government's commitment towards the construction of the new Gordie Howe International Bridge.”
