Federal Permit Granted for New Detroit-Windsor Bridge

The nation's busiest international crossing, the Detroit-Windsor crossing, is one step closer to the desperately needed new bridge linking the US and Canada.  On Friday, a joint delegation of state, federal, and Canadian officials announced that the Obama Administration issued a permit to begin construction of the second bridge. The approval is a key step toward completing the project, and limits the range of legal challenges in federal courts.  See coverage at Mlive and at the Detroit Free Press.
