The Gordie Howe International Bridge project is a planned bridge and
border crossing spanning the Detroit River and connecting Detroit,
Michigan, U.S. and Windsor, Ontario, Canada by linking Interstate 75 and
Interstate 96 in Michigan with the new extension of Highway 401 (Rt.
Hon. Herb Gray Parkway) in Ontario.
“Fluor is pleased with the selection of our joint venture team to
design, build, finance, operate and maintain this once-in-a-generation
project,” said Terence
Easton, president of Fluor’s infrastructure business. “We are
looking forward to partnering with WDBA to reach financial close later
this year and ultimately deliver a durable, long-lasting, landmark
bridge with a unique visual presence for the local community and
Fluor and ACS Infrastructure Canada led the development phase of the
project and will hold the prime contract. This is the second project in
the Windsor-Detroit area where Fluor and ACS have partnered. Fluor and
ACS recently delivered, and are currently operating and maintaining, the
Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway in Windsor, Ontario, that will connect to the
Gordie Howe International Bridge.
This partnership will design and build the project, and when complete,
this crossing will be the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America.
The scope also includes building new, state-of-the-art ports of entry on
both the U.S. and Canadian side of the Detroit River as well as
improvements to existing infrastructure in both Michigan and Ontario.
Early works will start this summer in advance of financial close, which
is set for this fall.
Fluor and ACS will operate and maintain the facility for 30 years to
performance standards that will be established by WDBA following
