"The city engineers looked at the bridge deck Wednesday. Then the city closed Peter and Donnelly streets under the bridge that afternoon.
Gaping holes can be seen from beneath the bridge."
"The game of holding the Ambassador Bridge rebuild work at bay until the government can get their bridge built is a dangerous one.
"It needs to be said that the City of Windsor has worked very hard to delay and object to a complete rebuild of this section of the bridge. The work was to have been performed this past summer. If the city found a genuine issue in need of repair that our engineer has missed, we'll take care of it. We are not aware of any incidents linked to the city's concerns. The major rebuild should be allowed to proceed.
The City Government in Windsor is now taunting us by criticizing the age of our bridge while simultaneously objecting to any major replacement or repairs."
