Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority issues $2b infrastructure RFP

by Andrea Waitrovich

The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority has issued an RFP to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Gordie Howe International Bridge project. The planned $2 billion project will be a six-lane, 1.5-mile bridge, either cable or suspension, connecting the United States and Canada.

The project includes four components — the Canadian and U.S. Ports of Entry, the bridge over the Detroit River between Windsor and Detroit, and the Michigan Interchange connecting to Interstate 75. The RFP process is expected to take 18 months.

The project aims to be completed in 2020; however, delays in issuing the RFP has extended the expected completion date.

The Gordie Howe International Bridge project will address four regional transportation needs at the busiest trade corridor between Canada and the United States. It will provide a new crossing option, highway-to-highway connections, modernized border processing facilities and capacity for future traffic growth.
