The omission in the federal budget for funding specifically for a border inspection plaza in Michigan is not expected to delay efforts to build a commuter bridge connecting Detroit with Canada, state officials say. Land acquisition for the New International Trade Crossing could start this summer on the U.S. side of the Detroit River, with bridge construction scheduled to begin in 2016. The project would be completed in 2020. The span would compete for the lucrative cross-border toll revenues in Detroit and Windsor, Ont., mainly being captured by the privately owned Ambassador Bridge. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)
