A man fishes along the Detroit river in Delray Park near the location where a new international bridge to Windsor, Ontario is slated to be built in Detroit, Michigan September 11, 2013. A federal judge ruled on December 3, 2013 that Detroit is bankrupt under federal law, prompting hope that the Motor City can emerge with a fresh chance for success. And a $4 billion bridge project would provide just the type of jobs and opportunities the city needs. Picture taken September 11.

A new bridge for Detroit may be in sight

A decade ago Les Cadman stopped making improvements to his small house in Detroit's declining Delray district because it stood in the path of a proposed bridge to Windsor, Ontario, the bustling Canadian city just across the Detroit River.



Years of opposition to the project, led by the billionaire private owner of the lone existing bridge from Detroit to Windsor, have helped keep plans for the new bridge on hold. This has left residents and community groups preparing for an eventual construction boom - but without knowing when it might start. (Reuters)
