U.S.-Canada Ambassador Bridge Reopens as Blockade Ends

Share this article

The Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor reopened on Sunday evening after the blockade of protesters against COVID-19 mandates brought international commerce at the busy U.S.-Canadian bridge to a standstill over the last week.

According to a report, the Detroit International Bridge Co. announced the reopening of the border crossing. The bridge is now fully open, allowing the free flow of commerce between the Canada and US economies.

“This action follows a state of emergency declared in Ontario and an injunction granted by an Ontario judge, which took effect Friday,” the statement continued.

The Canada Border Services Agency confirmed the bridge’s reopening shortly after midnight. As of 6 a.m., there was no disruption in traffic flow over the bridge, according to the agency.

Canadian police cleared earlier on Sunday protesters and vehicles within Windsor, Ontario, that had blocked the essential trade route that connects that border between Canada and United States with about 25-30 people arrested.

“Canadian authorities intend to reopen the Ambassador Bridge today after completing necessary safety checks,” White House Homeland Security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall said in a statement from Washington.
