Residents are being invited by the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority to attend a public open house on Tuesday, Nov. 17 to learn more about the Gordie Howe International Bridge project.

The information session will be held from 2 to 8 p.m. inside the clubhouse at the Ambassador Golf Club at 1025 Sprucewood Ave.

An overall project update will be on display with WDBA officials available to answer questions. Presentations will take place at 2:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Those interested in the project will receive information on the current “early works” project, a $59-million contract that already has Amico Infrastructure in the middle of site preparation in Windsor— building a new four-kilometre perimeter access road, utility relocation and installing drainage on the 100-acre site in Brighton Beach.

The Howe bridge is scheduled to open in 2020.

A similar project update meeting will be held in Detroit by WDBA Nov. 18 (also from 2 to 8 p.m.) at Historic Fort Wayne at 6325 W. Jefferson Ave.
