News from Mackinac: Business supports DRIC

“I want to make it clear that Chrysler strongly supports the proposed DRIC,” said Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Chrysler Group LLC. “This proposed new crossing would add necessary redundancy and unimpeded access from Ontario’s highways to Michigan’s interstates.”

“Smooth crossing is essential to our just-in-time manufacturing enterprise,” Marchionne said. “It is imperative that this new crossing be completed as soon as possible…this project needs adequate attention and needs to become a priority in federal and state political agendas, it is the most effective solution, in terms of costs and timing.”
