Joint Detroit bridge oversight panel announced


DETROIT (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder and Canadian Transport Minister Lisa Raitt have announced the creation of a joint panel to oversee the construction of a new bridge between Detroit and Windsor.

The two made the announcement in Canada, and appointed three panel members from Michigan and three from Windsor. The New International Trade Crossing bridge will be built two miles south of the Ambassador Bridge, and will be publicly owned, with a projected opening in 2020.

The new span isn't a done deal yet, as the U.S. government needs to commit to paying for a U.S. Customs plaza and the land for that has not been purchased.
