Join CILT North America for their upcoming webinar on Infrastructure Impact on Economic Growth: Harnessing the Potential in the Ontario-Michigan/Ohio Corridor with guest speaker, Dr. Bill Anderson, Director, Cross Border Institute, University of Windsor.

Most of the merchandise trade between Canada and the US moves by truck, and therefore relies on the cross-border integration of the highway networks of both countries. The Detroit River crossing is the most important Canada-US connection by value of trade and a critical link in the binational highway infrastructure system.

By providing route choice, increased capacity, redundancy and more efficient border processing, the Gordie Howe International Bridge ensures that the Detroit River crossing will be well served for the remainder of the 21st century and beyond.

Bill Anderson’s presentation reports on an international, interdisciplinary study to assess the economic significance of the new bridge and make recommendations on how governments at all levels, trading firms and logistics providers can take advantage of the economic opportunities that it will open up.
