Gordie Howe International Bridge Survey – Wants to Hear from Carriers

The Gordie Howe International Bridge project is North America’s largest binational infrastructure project. The bridge will allow users to directly connect to the highway networks of Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario while adding redundancy, capacity, and connectivity to the region’s international bridge system. The bridge is expected to provide a boost to trade and travel between the two countries and ensure there is sufficient border crossing capacity to accommodate future growth in cross-border trade and traffic.

With the construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge project already underway, Windsor Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA), a not-for-profit Canadian Crown corporation responsible for the construction of the bridge is looking to hear from Canadian and American trucking firms that regularly conduct cross-border carriages at the Ontario-Michigan boarder.

WDBA has commissioned a third-party research firm, R.A. Malatest & Associated Ltd. to conduct this study. Your input will help inform important aspects of the Gordie Howe Bridge crossing experience, such as crossing times, cost of tolls, tolling infrastructure and other important considerations related to bridge amenities. To thank you for your time, those who complete the survey will receive a CAD $100 / US $75 e-gift card.

A high-level overview of survey results will be developed after data collection has been completed. This overview will include information such as the types of shipments crossing the border, trip frequency and other user characteristics. These results will be reported collectively, without identifying individual results. No proprietary information will be shared.
