AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently took a cruise on the Detroit River and saw construction of the new Gordie Howe International Bridge. The crossing will connect Detroit and Windsor by linking Interstate 75 in Michigan with Highway 401 in Ontario (through the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway extension of Highway 401). The bridge will provide uninterrupted freeway traffic flow, as opposed to the current configuration with the nearby Ambassador Bridge that connects to city streets on the Ontario side. The bridge is named after Canadian ice hockey player Gordie Howe, whose celebrated career included 25 years with the Detroit Red Wings, and who died two years before construction began. Construction is expected to be completed in 2025.
