Bridge Owners: Major Decline In Truck Traffic
DETROIT (WWJ) – More fuel for the debate on whether we really need a second bridge over the Detroit River:
The owners of the Ambassador Bridge say truck traffic so far this year is at its second-worst total of the last 11 years, and is down 41% over that same time frame.
The information comes from the Detroit International Bridge Company, which is trying to halt efforts to build a government-funded second span over the Detroit River.
Truck traffic through March is down one percent from the same period last year, although car traffic at the bridge rose six percent.
