Detroit bridge construction to create jobs
One of the upsides to the new bridge is the creation of 10,000 jobs for construction, Snyder said.
How many jobs will come to the U.S. side of the bridge is still up in the air. The contract does require there to be special set asides for what they are calling community benefit plans.
-- The Detroit International Bridge Company, which owns the Ambassador Bridge, has fiercely contested a new bridge. The company has battled Snyder's effort since he became governor, warning Michigan taxpayers that they will have to pay despite Snyder's assurance they won't.
