March 27, 2012 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) today posted a video on its YouTube channel to update the public on progress on the Gateway project.

On March 8, 2012, Wayne County Circuit Judge Prentis Edwards ordered MDOT to finish the project as agreed to in a 2004 contract between the State of Michigan and the Detroit International Bridge Company. The State of Michigan is fully complying with the judge's order, currently soliciting bids from consultants and contractors to finish the project using the design-build contracting process.

The Gateway project is a $230 million investment designed to ease traffic congestion and safety at the busiest international border crossing for trade in North America. A completed Gateway also will keep commercial trucks off local streets as they enter the U.S. from Canada.
