DETROIT (WKZO) -- The owners of the Ambassador Bridge have amended a lawsuit filed in Washington D.C. in 2010 seeking to block the building of the new International Trade Crossing between Detroit and Canada.

The 116-page document lists several high ranking officials including Secretary of State John Kerry, Homeland Security Head Janet Napolitano, and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood as defendants.  The Detroit International Bridge Company is asking a federal judge to stop the new project claiming it will prevent the Ambassador Bridge from "maintaining their franchise".

The company also says a new bridge will violate a 1921 agreement signed with the Canadian government.
