Work on Gordie Howe Bridge Moves Forward

March 6, 2024
The bridge is expected to be completed in September 2025

On Tuesday, officials from the U.S. and Canada toured the site of the Gordie Howe International Bridge in Detroit.

Construction began in fall 2018, and the opening timeline was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project has a contract valued at about $4.8 billion.

The bridge has made progress in recent months, with the erection of its 722-foot tower in August and again with its matching tower in Canada in December.

This summer, officials with the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority and Bridging North America are expected to complete the main span of the bridge and finally connect the two nations.

Approximately $13 million has been invested in over 50 community initiatives in Detroit, and Windsor, Canada since 2019, officials announced.

The bridge is expected to be completed in September 2025.
