(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority has announced that it will spend an untendered $1 million on a study projecting the economic benefits of the Gordie Howe Bridge.
The announcement, made yesterday afternoon, paired the Cross-Border Institute, of the University of Windsor, and Michigan State’s Canadian Studies Centre as partners in the three-phase study. They will determine the economic benefits of the bridge construction as well as suggest opportunities for economic development once the bridge is opened.
Construction of the Gordie Howe Bridge isn’t schedule to commence until some time after 2020.
