Bridge authority awards contract to build new Windsor-Detroit bridge

The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority announced last week that they have signed a fixed-priced contract with consortium Bridging North America to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Gordie Howe International Bridge project. The announcement signifies that all contractual steps have been completed and construction can begin.

The fixed-priced contract is valued at $5.7 billion, which includes the design-build phase and the operation, maintenance, rehabilitation phase.

Bridging North America has presented a 74-month construction schedule to complete the four components of the project with the bridge expected to be in service by the end of 2024.
