DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Detroit automakers are urging the White House to approve funding for a new bridge linking Detroit and Ontario.

Canada is paying for the bridge, but Washington needs to fund the U.S. Customs inspection plaza in Detroit. GM, Ford, Chrysler, the Michigan AFL-CIO and the United Auto Workers have written to President Obama to get Washington into the situation.

The customs plaza is expected to cost 250-million dollars to build.
