The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority has announced the Bridging North America consortium as the preferred proponent to build and operate the Gordie Howe International Bridge.
Construction of the bridge is expected to begin later this year.
The bridge consortium, which includes ACS Infrastructure Canada Inc., Dragados Canada Inc., Fluor Canada Ltd. and others, beat out two other groups.
Bridging North America’s plan for the bridge calls for a six-lane, 2.5-kilometre cable-stayed design.
The bridge authority said it still needs to negotiate the final contract details.
The cost of the project, design details and expected construction schedule are expected to be announced once the contract has been awarded and signed.
