DETROIT (WXYZ) - As Governor Rick Snyder and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper signed a monumental bridge deal, protesters gathered outside Cobo Center.
Members of the Delray community, where the second bridge would be built, worried their neighborhood would be neglected or overrun by industrial giants.
Scott Brines, President of Southwest Community Benefit Coalition, met with Lt. Governor Brian Calley Friday morning ahead of the signing of the agreement.
Brines says some of their concerns were eased, but not enough to keep a dozen of them from protesting.
Right next to the protesters was a group of supporters. They believe the urgency for job growth should take precedence.
