IRVING, CANADIAN FIRMS
TO BUILD INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE
Irving-based Fluor Corp. announced July 5 that Bridging North America, a partnership of Fluor and ACS Infrastructure Canada, was selected to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Gordie Howe International Bridge project for Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority. Fluor plans to book its share of the design and construction contract value in the fourth quarter of 2018.
The project is a planned bridge and border crossing spanning the Detroit River and connecting Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, Canada, by linking Interstate 75 and Interstate 96 in Michigan with the new extension of Highway 401 in Ontario.
A final contract is expected to be signed later this year for the cable-stayed bridge. The Canadian-financed bridge is scheduled to open in 2020.
The final cost of the project has not been announced, but reports in the Canadian media say it may be about $4.8 billion in Canadian dollars.
The privately owned Ambassador Bridge currently links the cities. Its owners are planning their own new span next to the existing bridge.
“Fluor is pleased with the selection of our joint venture team to design, build, finance, operate and maintain this once-in-a-generation project,” said Terence Easton, president of Fluor’s infrastructure business. “We are looking forward to partnering with WDBA to reach financial close later this year and ultimately deliver a durable, long-lasting, landmark bridge with a unique visual presence for the local community and international travelers.”
I Can Still Shine, a foundation serving battered women and children in the Tarrant County area, has acquired a 5,840-square-foot office property at 3313 Crites St. in Richland Hills.
