Ambassador Bridge

The Ambassador Bridge is North America's #1 international border crossing. It spans the Detroit River, connecting Detroit, Michigan with Windsor, Canada. Approval for the Ambassador Bridge was granted by acts of both the Congress of the United States and Canada's Parliament. At the time of its completion in November of 1929, the Ambassador Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world, exceeding by 100 feet the Philadelphia-Camden Bridge completed in 1926.

For more information, visit the Ambassador Bridge website.
