Car transport professionals that have been watching the growing clouds of doubt around the completion of the proposed Detroit River International Crossing (DRIC) with a growing sense of disbelief will be glad to hear support for this project still appears to be strong. Privately-operated Ambassador Bridge recently launched a law suit against the DRIC, stating that construction of the DRIC would bankrupt the Ambassador Bridge, the Blue Water Bridge and Detroit-Windsor Tunnel. The latest report that will interest car shipping professionals is that the President of the Blue Water Bridge recently announced that the building of the Detroit River International Crossing (DRIC) wouldn't change business for the Blue Water Bridge and that he supports the completion of the DRIC. The Blue Water Bridge (BWB) is a vital transport route for car transportation services and links Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan. In fact, the President of the Blue Water Bridge believes that the construction of the DRIC is vital to the continued support of the growth of trade and social interaction between Canada and the United States as we head further into the century of the environment.
The Blue Water Bridge is a crown corporation jointly controlled by the government of Canada and the Michigan Department of Transport, so the statements by their president falling in line with the comments and beliefs of the government of Canada at a time when the legal eagles are about to be put to work on this affair, is probably not a surprise to many in the vehicle transport industry. The comments by the President of the Blue Water Bridge might put a little doubt in the minds of many legal eagles about the possibility that the construction of the DRIC could have an effect on the future of the Ambassador Bridge, the Blue Water Bridge and Detroit-Windsor Tunnel though and this could be exactly what the statements were designed to accomplish?
