Court denies Ambassador’s appeal over Gateway work

DETROIT — The temporary stay of a judge’s order that the Ambassador Bridge must redo construction work as part of the Detroit Gateway project has been dissolved.

The Michigan Supreme Court of Appeals denied the bridge company’s application to appeal a March ruling by Circuit Court Judge Prentis Edwards, who agreed with the Michigan Dept. of Transport that a portion of the Detroit Gateway project — an effort between the bridge company and the MDOT to link the bridge to I-75 and I-96 — did not conform to the agreement.

Judge Edwards demanded that the bridge company tear down newly built amenities on the bridge approaches and redo part of the project.

Earlier this month, Ambassador Bridge owner Manuel Moroun won a temporary stay of the original order while the Supreme Court looked into the issue.
