Toronto, February 14, 2022
The Ambassador Bridge, one of the busiest international land border crossings in Canada linking Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan, has reopened after being closed for nearly a week due to protests against pandemic restrictions and mandates.
"The Ambassador Bridge is now fully open allowing the free flow of commerce between the Canada and U.S. economies once again," the Detroit International Bridge Company, which is responsible for maintaining the bridge, announced in a statement late Sunday.
Traffic was flowing normally across the bridge, as confirmed by the Canada Border Services Agency just before midnight on Sunday, February 13th.
"The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) can confirm that travellers and commercial carriers are now being processed entering Canada at the Ambassador Bridge port of entry," said Judith Gadbois-St-Cyr, a spokeswoman for the agency.
