That could mean continued debate over whether to build a new bridge to connect Detroit to Canada, Laura Weber reports. As Weber explains:</p><blockquote><p>Steudle has drawn heat from Republican lawmakers over the past few years for his support of a second bridge span between Detroit and Canada. The legislators were unhappy with a detailed traffic report from the department, but Steudle says that information will be rolled into continued analysis of the bridge. Governor-elect Snyder says just because he tapped Steudle to continue as director doesn’t mean the bridge will be built. But the discussion will continue.</p></blockquote><p>The proposed <a href="http://www.partnershipborderstudy.com/">Detroit River International Crossing</a> would compete with the <a href="http://www.ambassadorbridge.com/">Ambassador Bridge</a>.
