On February 18, 2015, the Toronto Globe and Mail announced that the government of Canada had failed to get Washington to pay the roughly $250 million (U.S.) needed to build a U.S. customs plaza on the Michigan side of the New International Trade Crossing, a proposed new Detroit-Windsor bridge.    Ottawa will be responsible for financing the entire cost of the $2.1-billion bridge, including access roads on both sides of the Detroit River as well as U.S. border installations.


Transport Action Ontario has long opposed this project.   Our commentary on these latest developments can be viewed here:   TAO-NITC-2015-02-25
