DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) - Today, Matthew Moroun, son of Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun, sat down with Stephen Clark for an exclusive interview for Channel 7’s Detroit 2020.
The owners of the Ambassador Bridge say they are prepared to match the deal offered by the Canadian government for the right to build a second span linking Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.
Moroun was asked about the $550 million offered by the Canadians that would be repaid with tolls from a new bridge two miles downriver of the current Ambassador Bridge.
He told Stephen, “Here’s what should happen – the Ambassador Bridge Company is prepared to spend private capital, the same $500 million to build another span. That $500 million of American private sector funds would count just as much toward the federal match as the foreign aid that Canada has offered Michigan.”
