Officials: Bridge linking Ontario, with Detroit closed

July 17, 2012 06:57

The Ambassador Bridge, a busy international border crossing linking Windsor, Ontario, with Detroit, was closed Monday night, officials said. No immediate reason was given by police.

The shutdown comes less than a week after the Detroit Windsor Tunnel, a nearby cross-border route, was closed by a bomb threat.

Neal Belitsky, the president of the privately owned company that operates the tunnel, told Reuters the Ambassador Bridge shutdown was also the result of a bomb threat, but Canadian and US police did not immediately confirm that.
