A suspicious package was found in a vehicle at the Ambassador Bridge, closing North America’s busiest land border crossing connecting Detroit, Mich. and Windsor, Ont., late Sunday evening.

Motorists were asked by Windsor police to use the Detriot-Windsor Tunnel instead as the bridge would remain closed for an “undetermined period of time.” The bridge was reported as open on Monday morning.

On a daily basis, the border crossing handles roughly $400 million in goods travelling between Canada and the U.S. on a daily basis.

Overall, it facilitates nearly a quarter of the trade activity between the two neighbours.
