Court rejects challenge to US-Canada bridge plan

Headline Legal News Posted on

An appeals court has upheld a federal agency's selection of a Detroit neighborhood as the location for a new U.S.-Canada bridge.

The court affirmed the decision of a Detroit federal judge, who rejected a lawsuit by community groups and owners of the private Ambassador Bridge.

They oppose the Federal Highway Administration's choice of the Delray neighborhood for the bridge crossing, contending it violates principles of environmental justice. But the appeals court said Friday that the agency followed a "lengthy, reasoned process."

Earlier this month, the U.S. Coast Guard granted a permit to construct the publicly owned bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.

Canadian officials say it could take at least a decade to finish the project.
