Ambassador Bridge appeal is turned down

By Administrator |

An application by the Detroit International Bridge Company for the right to appeal against a court order requiring the removal of its duty free store and fuel pumps on the Detroit side of the Ambassador

Bridge has been refused by Wayne County Circuit Judge Prentice Edwards.

The Ambassador Bridge – linking Michigan with Ontario in Canada – is owned by the Detroit International Bridge Company, which in turn, is owned by Manuel 'Matty' Moroun, who is now expected to ask for a review of the decision by the Michigan Court of Appeals.

The Wayne County Circuit court ruled on February 5 that the duty free store and the fuel pumps were built on land owned by the City of Detroit and should be removed. It also said that construction was not in line with the original agreement related to the $230m Ambassador Gateway project, aimed at improving access roads and traffic efficiencies at the crossing.
