Celebrating a Milestone with Prospec's Flagpoles - Gordon Howe Bridge

The Gordie Howe International Bridge is nearing completion, and Prospec Specialties is proud to have supplied the aluminum flagpoles for this iconic project. This bridge, set to open in the fall 2025, represents a significant milestone for both the construction teams and the communities it will serve.

Connecting Detroit, USA, and Windsor, Canada, the Gordie Howe International Bridge features the longest main span of any cable-stayed bridge in North America. This engineering marvel will enhance cross-border connectivity and trade.

Our aluminum flagpoles, chosen for their superior durability and aesthetic appeal, are a perfect fit for this prestigious project. These flagpoles are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions along with corrosion resistance while maintaining their sleek appearance.

Grondin, a key figure in the project, reflects on this achievement: "This is a true milestone moment for those working on the bridge. Watching the construction over the past year has been exhilarating, and seeing the first connecting pieces in place fills everyone with pride and joy."

The Gordie Howe International Bridge project is a once-in-a-generation undertaking. Not only will the project deliver much-needed transportation improvements for international travellers, it will also provide jobs and opportunities for growth to the Windsor-Detroit region and includes features that make this project truly distinctive.

The ironworkers celebrated this milestone with a topping-out ceremony, a tradition dating back over 1,000 years. The placement of an evergreen tree symbolizes good luck and a job well done, highlighting the pride and heritage of the ironworking community.
