People who travel between Windsor and Detroit are used to being stuck in traffic and Ottawa wants to help.
The Canadian government offered a loan to help pay for the bridge, but not everyone in Michigan wants to accept the money.
A group called Americans for Prosperity-Michigan has launched a campaign to stop the bridge because it believes Michiganders would end up having to pay the Canadian government instead of a private company to build it.
It organized a rally today on the steps of the Michigan state capital that included more than 500 Tea Party followers to denounce high taxes, big government and the proposed bridge.
The $550-million loan was offered by Ottawa to Michigan a year ago to jump start the building of the $5.3-billion megaproject and help a state hit hard by the auto sector slump.
Federal Minster of Transport John Baird said at the time Canada would recoup the loan by collecting a portion of the tolls.
