News reports indicate an agreement has been reached for the customs and toll plaza on the U.S. side of the New International Trade Crossing -- a/k/a the new bridge across the Detroit River downriver -- clearing, according to these media accounts, the last obstacle in the way of bridge construction.
The site of the span will be adjacent to Historic Fort Wayne. This U.S. heritage site continues to deteriorate such that, the last time visited, parts of the outer masonry walls were crumbling. It would not be appropriate for visitors to Michigan traveling into our Great Lake State to see it in such condition.
Here's hoping that some entity with responsibility and conscience will see that HFW becomes part of the renewal of this desperate part of Detroit.
