On Monday, a road near the Ambassador Bridge, in Detroit, Michigan, opened. The road was designed to get thousands of tucks off secondary Detroit streets, by connecting U.S. bound trucks, coming off the bridge, to nearby interstates.

Lt. Governor Brian Calley marked the occasion with an event near the bridge that connects Detroit to Windsor, Ontario,over the Detroit River.

“Never again will trucks entering the United States drive through the neighborhoods,” Tony Kratofil, regional engineer for the Michigan Department of Transportation, said at the event, the Northwestern reports.

The projet cost $230 million and took several years to complete.
