The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) released a statement that it has extended the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage of the procurement process by four months.
“This extension does not impact our commitment to begin significant construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge in 2018,” the statement said.
With this extension, WDBA will receive Proponents’ proposals in May 2018. Financial close, which marks the completion of the procurement process, is planned for September 2018. Prior to this, the Preferred Proponent will be able to begin preliminary construction activities and site works.
