We Are American Roads

American Roads owns and operates transportation infrastructure that connects people to business and brings communities together. We are successful in part due to the strong partnerships we have with governments, industry, and communities.

From 1930-1990 we owned and/or operated the international tunnel connecting Detroit, Michigan to Windsor, Ontario. We continue managing the tunnel operations today. Additionally, American Roads owns four toll assets in Alabama that have been under our leadership since 2006.

We have experience in the development, construction, and management of public-private assets. Our strengths include servicing technology to ensure our assets' success, experience in border stakeholder management, border and site security, and government and local community relations. We have been providing local staffing and employment opportunities since 1930.

Our management team holds an impressive track record in the transportation industry, and we employ more than 80 permanent positions across five cities and two states. Our diverse workforce comes from the areas we serve in Alabama, Detroit, and Ontario.

Core Values

In all we do, our core values drive our success.

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance

Our Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) values shape how we operate. As a result of our ESG commitments, we prioritize the health and safety of our employees, contractors, and the traveling public while promoting the welfare and prosperity of the communities we serve.

We also ensure that our operational practices reduce environmental impact through routine assessments of company compliance with environmental laws and regulations. We have integrated environmental support initiatives, such as recycling at the Detroit Windsor Tunnel, LED lighting upgrades at all our facilities, and other energy efficient upgrades. We are also committed to measuring and offsetting our carbon footprint. In pursuit of this goal, American Roads is undergoing the process of shifting our energy use to renewable sources.

More information about our ESG commitments can be found in our 2020 ESG & Initiative Committee Charter.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At American Roads, we are committed to creating a culture of belonging. We celebrate uniqueness and believe that our strength comes from our diversity. We ensure inclusion for all our employees, customers, partners, and the communities we serve.

In 2020, our DEI efforts were focused on gaining knowledge and obtaining an understanding to ensure that equity and inclusion would be woven throughout our corporate practices and policies. As a result, we established a diverse group of voices and formed the Company’s first DEI Committee who will lead our commitment to creating a culture of belonging for everyone.
