The tower on the USA side of the Gordie Howe International Bridge is at its full height of 220m.
The last concrete pour on the top of the pylon, shaped to prevent ice accumulating, is finished. The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority reports that the jump form system will soon be removed.
The Canada tower will undergo the same process in September. The cable-stayed bridge will open in 2025.
Gordie Howe Bridge will have three lanes in each direction and a multi-use path for pedestrians and cyclists. Approach bridges on either side will connect the bridge with the ports of entry.
The construction and operation of this bridge is overseen by the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA), a non-profit public-private partnership Canadian Crown corporation. The private sector partner is Bridging North America, a consortium of ACS Infrastructure, Fluor and Aecon.
We posted a flyover of the bridge site in January 2023 (link opens in new tab).
