Officials have reached an agreement to build a new Canadian-financed bridge linking Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. More than a quarter of the annual trade between Canada and the U.S. – $130 billion – is trucked over the Windsor-Detroit border. It handles more traffic than any other international crossing in North America. Reports indicate the 4 year project will produce 12,000 jobs per year. Nearly 1,400 permanent jobs would be created from the operation of the new bridge. “This isn’t just about trading with Canada. This is about trading with the entire globe,” said Brad Williams, vice president of government relations for the Detroit Regional Chamber.
