A 32-member joint US-Canadian design jury has announced that the Peace Bridge will be built to Christian Menn's two tower cable-stayed design. The jury had recommended the design early last month but has now met with the local authorities and confirmed the decision. Two 173m-high needle-shaped towers will straddle the roadway, supporting a main span of 500m. The bridge is expected to cost US$110 million.
