Building the Gordie Howe International Bridge connecting Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, takes a lot of heavy lifting.

Although two Comansa tower cranes have been the most visible throughout most of the project, many other cranes play vital roles in building the bridge. IUOE, Local 793 has 60 to 80 of its Operating Engineers working on the project at any given time, with an expected increase in demand for skilled tradespeople throughout the season.

Construction is expected to be completed by November 2024.
