WINDSOR, Ont. – Four levels of government will work together to solve a problem that threatens to slow Canada-U.S. trade on a grand scale: congestion at the Windsor-Detroit border crossing.
Canada, the U.S., Ontario and Michigan have announced a call for expressions of interest to conduct a study aimed at improving traffic flow at the international corridor, – one of the busiest international crossings in the world.

The study will assess the existing transportation network and long-range transportation plans in Southeast Michigan and Southwest Ontario.
Meanwhile, a private company says for about US$600 million, it could solve the congestion that routinely snarls the Windsor-Detroit border crossing.
