"Today's news is a critical step forward in building the Detroit-Windsor bridge, which means new jobs, new commerce and increased security for our state. I was pleased to be involved in a number of conversations over the last year both in Ottawa and in DC with top Canadian officials to find a solution to the funding of the plaza. The Canadians should be applauded for their willingness to creatively work with us to remove the final barrier to completing this critical project."
