After eight years in the making, and unmaking, Gateway project opens
Construction on the Gateway Project started in 2004. The $258 million construction project was supposed to be finished years ago, but a partnership between the Ambassador Bridge owners and the Michigan Department of Transportation broke down. A court determined the owners were not holding up their end of the bargain, and pulled them off the project. Today, another milestone passes in the saga as the Gateway Project opens.
With the periodic honk of semi horns echoing past, onlookers on a service drive today celebrated the opening of freeway ramps from I-75 as part of the long-delayed Gateway Project.
