Video: Interview with Michigan DOT’s Ajegbaeditor@aashto.org May 29, 2020 0 COMMENTS
Prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Transportation TV sat down with Paul Ajegba (seen above), director of the Michigan Department of Transportation, for its Two Minute State DOT Update video series.
In this video interview, Ajegba discussed the three biggest challenges faced by the Michigan DOT at the time; issues that remain unresolved as the state continues to grappled with the COVID-19 crisis.
Those challenges include construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge; a massive six lane cable-stayed bridge design that will link the United States and Canada. Named for Canadian ice hockey player Gordie Howe, the bridge is financed through a public-private partnership or P3 agreement and it’s expected to open sometime in the year 2024.
