Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer mentioned Thursday that the blocking of Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge by protesters is hurting the state’s economic system.

“The blockade is having a major affect on Michigan’s working households who’re simply making an attempt to do their jobs. Our communities and automotive, manufacturing and agriculture companies are feeling the consequences. It is hitting paychecks and manufacturing traces. That’s unacceptable,” she mentioned in a Twitter post.

Whitmer mentioned the bridge, which is between Windsor, Ontario, and Detroit, must be reopened to site visitors. “Industrial site visitors is at a standstill and closely backed up on the Blue Water Bridge,” she wrote.

It is a growing story and will likely be up to date when extra data turns into obtainable.
