The Gordie Howe International Bridge project is a once-in-a-generation undertaking that will deliver much-needed transportation improvements for industries needing to move goods to and from Canada. Ohio’s exporters sell more to Canada than to their next 8 foreign destinations, combined. Canada buys about 40% of Ohio’s worldwide exports. Once constructed, this port will be the largest Canadian port along the Canada-US border and one of the largest anywhere in North America.
Local road improvements include:
4 new road bridges and widened roads at key intersections to allow transport trucks to make full uninterrupted turns
Primary connecting ramps to and from the US POE
4 bridges crossing the railway and connecting I-75 to the US POE
Reconfiguration of I-75 interchange ramps and service drives
This project is planned to open to traffic by the end of 2024.
