(1/9/2020) - A design has been selected for pedestrian bridges over a Detroit freeway as part of an international bridge project connecting the city to Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Officials say the five spans over I-75 in southwest Detroit will be part of interchange work being completed for the Gordie Howe International Bridge.

The design features a curved steel arch and the pedestrian bridges will be constructed of pre-cast concrete. Work on the bridges is expected to be done between this year and 2024.

The $4.4 billion international bridge is expected to open in late 2024.
