Windsor/Detroit tunnel closed due to bomb threat

The Detroit/Windsor tunnel was shut down for about five hours between 12:30 PM and 4:30 PM Thursday afternoon due to a bomb threat received by phone at the international border crossing. The Canadian and American bomb squads entered the tunnel just after 1:00pm, while the U.S. Coast Guard set up at 900 metre safety zone.

The 1600 metre tunnel that runs under The Detroit River was searched first with video equipment, then bomb sniffing dogs and the bomb squad. There were nothing found and the tunnel was reopened.
