Detroit River & Ambassador Bridge Photos
The Detroit River flows into Lake Eire from Lake St Clair which is fed by Lake Huron. As a major Great Lakes shipping route & a border between the USA & Canada, the river offers an ever changing panorama of lake freighters. At the city of Detroit, there are only two crossing points, the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel & the Ambassador Bridge (1929) (Center span length 570 m 1,870 ft) (Height of towers 118 m 386 ft). The only other bridge across these straights is at Port Huron on the northern end of these straights.
