What We Do

The Southwest Detroit Community Benefits Coalition (CBC) formed in 2008 during the federal environmental study for the Detroit River International Crossing Project, now the Gordie Howe International Bridge. The coalition has been advocating and working with many partners to secure protections and quality of life improvements for the community directly affected by the construction and operation of the bridge development. It is guided by a community-elected board with residents and other stakeholders. Work has included providing health impact surveys, community air monitoring, legal and supportive counselling for required home relocations for hundreds of families, and creating access to bridge-related jobs.  Through partnerships with the City, State, Canada and in 2017, over $45-million in Community Benefits Programs were secured including for an optional Home Swap and mitigations programs to address high impacts from truck traffic and emissions, and coming implementation of a planning process to address changing community conditions with the doubling of truck traffic and increasing industrial activity.
