The Ambassador Bridge, connecting Windsor, Ont. and Detroit, is closed Monday morning due to “potential explosives located in the area.”
Windsor Police tweeted shortly after 10 a.m. Monday that the bridge had been closed to oncoming US traffic and that their explosives disposal unit was at the scene.
Less than an hour later, the police service issued an update stating that the bridge would also be closed to Canadians entering the US.
Police say the area has been evacuated and traffic is being redirected to the nearby Windsor-Detroit Tunnel as well as the Blue Water Bridge connecting Sarnia, Ont. and Port Huron, Mich.
more to come.
