Manuel “Matty” Moroun (created June 5, 1927) is an American businessman and also the owner of CenTra, Inc., the holding company which commands the Ambassador Bridge. The latter is important as it’s the sole private possession of a border crossing involving America and Canada. He purchased the bridge in the Bower Family in 1979. It’s now estimated to be worth between 1.5 and 3 billion dollars. CenTra, Inc., is also the commanding body of Central Transport International, an LTL trucking carrier. A recent Forbes article listed him as the 321st most affluent American.
In 2009, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) sued Moroun as well as the Detroit International Bridge Company for failing to obey the conditions of a contract to build ramps linking the Ambassador Bridge to nearby expressways within the Gateway Project. On 25 March 2010, it had been declared that Moroun would sue the US and Canadian authorities over the Detroit River International Crossing. He sought to block building of the brand new bridge as it could compete with his own suggestion to get another span of the Ambassador Bridge, which he’d additionally possess. Critics indicate that Moroun’s resistance is fueled by the prospect of lost gains from duty free gas sales, which are exempt from about 60 cents per gallon in taxes despite the fact that the pump cost to consumers is just several cents lower.
