Honestly, if they don't like people's answers then pull them in. We finally got through and we're all of 2 minutes with the border... More

It's a nice bridge. Lots of lights at night, and you can see lots of great views of the surrounding area. It is the truck crossing, especially at night.

I ham crossing this bridge very often between the USA and Canada. The view from the bridge is wonderful. It is a very convenient way to cross, it is for the most time quick and traffic flows pretty well. Now the bridge is going thru some work of renovation, it is about time!!! It is still a very beautiful bridge!

We took the tunnel over to Winsdor, so we thought we'd take the bridge back, for the views of the Detroit skyline and Detroit River views. So, that part was was accomplished. Great views, especially of the river. The road and rail conditions are atrocious. Holes, poor patching, poor orange cone placement, narrow lanes/closed lanes. Guardrails look like they could...

The only reason to choose this over the tunnel crossing is the gas and the duty free. Duty free on the Detroit side was actually alright -- the bargain corner actually has great deals on almost everything shown there, if you're interested in shopping. Otherwise, I would take the tunnel -- even the views on the bridge aren't that spectacular.

Honestly the poorest excuse of an international crossing I've ever seen. Trucks rule the world, and get to do whatever they want because Moroun owns most of the trucking companies, tolls are ridiculously high, and the state of it is atrocious.

The ambassador bridge is under perpetual construction. Every time we go at least 2 lanes are closed. The 1920's era safety rails have completely rusted through, the bridge surface is rough. Toll is high, currently $5 US/ $6.25 CAD. On the good side it is the usually the fastest way to get to 401 or EC Row expressway. The Detroit... More
