WDBA announces 13 new community benefits projects

DETROIT—The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority and its project team Bridging North America have announced 13 new community benefits projects representing $2.6 million in spending under the Gordie Howe International Bridge project’s Community Benefits Plan.

The spending will benefit Sandwich/west Windsor and Delray/southwest Detroit, stated a recent release. The six initiatives in Windsor and seven in Detroit are divided among the following community targets: $250,000 towards local history and culture; $1.25 million toward community safety; $540,000 toward green initiatives; $250,000 toward food security; $250,000 toward wellness; and $100,000 toward community partnerships. 

Funding is provided through the Neighbourhood Infrastructure Strategy, a $23-million fund targeting both sides of the border. Public consultation undertaken in 2023 helped identify current community priorities.

In 2024, the communities will see cycling infrastructure added to Jefferson Avenue and Clark Street, enabling a connection between the Gordie Howe International Bridge multi-use path and Detroit’s Joe Louis Greenway.
