Ambassador Bridge ordered to make repairs

Transport Canada ordered the Ambassador Bridge to make emergency repairs on the Canadian side of the international border crossing that connects Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan.

Concerns reportedly involve railings and curbs, and require temporary concrete barriers to divide the traffic in both directions and separate it from the outside curb.

“It’s possible carriers and travellers could encounter some delays at some point, depending on how quickly the bridge reacts to the order,” the Ontario Trucking Association says.

Last year, Transport Canada also issued an order to the Detroit International Bridge Company to fix railings, concrete curb and sidewalk on the U.S. side of the span.
