DETROIT (WKZO) -- Another key hurdle has been cleared in efforts to construct a new Detroit-to-Canada public bridge.

The Coast Guard recently issued a required permit for a publicly owned bridge, clearing the way for the next phase of the project. A spokesperson for Governor Rick Snyder says it's another milestone in the critical project.

The approval paves the way for securing funds for a U.S. customs facility and acquiring land on the American side.
