DETROIT—A second bridge connecting Detroit and Windsor, Canada, over the Detroit River won’t open for travel until fall 2025, months later than anticipated, officials said Thursday.

Officials cited construction disruptions in the United States and Canada related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Construction on the Gordie Howe International Bridge, named for the Canadian hockey legend who led the Detroit Red Wings to four Stanley Cups, began in 2018 and was last scheduled to be completed in 2024.

The target now is September 2025, though the bridge deck should be finished this year.

“Our project team is pleased that the impact to the construction schedule is limited to only 10 months beyond the original contracted completion date,” said Charl van Niekerk, chief executive of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority.

The project carries a price tag of CA$6.4 billion ($4.79 billion), up from CA$5.7 billion ($4.27 billion).
