CHICAGO — The Michigan House is expected to vote Tuesday on a bill that would advance a controversial $2 billion bond-funded bridge spanning the busy Detroit-Canada trade route.

The Legislature is facing a self-imposed June 1 deadline to vote on the project, which has been debated for years. Twice this week the Democratic-controlled House delayed a vote on the measure, and it is currently expected to consider the bill Tuesday. If approved, the legislation would move to the Republican-controlled Senate.
