I think this development was mentioned earlier this year but did we know the possible scope of it then? There's a new article out where the Bridge Co. is basically saying they are going to try and use the Detroit Port Authority contract to build or at least control any new crossing...

The contract also allows Moroun, at his discretion, to run other transportation projects that the port authority may build anywhere in Wayne County. Under the contract's terms, a bridge across the Detroit River can be built by the authority and operated by Moroun, according to Olinek, the port authority official.

So is it the Port Authority that would be part of the new crossing? Sounds like bad news.
