Snyder: ‘We’re gonna build that bridge yet.’

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder didn’t mince words when asked at a recent online town hall meeting about opposition to the Detroit River International Crossing project.

Snyder lambasted the Ambassador Bridge company as the “one special interest” fighting the new crossing, and said millions have been spent on “misleading ads.”

“It’s simply wrong,” Snyder added.

Snyder said he understands why the bridge company opposes the DRIC project.

“Essentially, they have a situation where they don’t have competition and they can charge their tolls, and do relatively well — or very well — from a financial point of view.”

Snyder said the new crossing needs to be built because it’s “in the best interests of Michiganders.”
