We took the bridge home as the tunnel was closed for work in the evening. This is how we normally go thru Canada when going or coming thru Detroit. It is better than the Skyway bridge in Chicago.

The bridge itself needs lots of repairs but I do love the views from it. It takes me where I need to go and I find it quite fast. Customs does not seem to take too long to get across either direction at the boarder....More

It's just another bridge. There are lots of bigger, taller, cooler bridges around, so don't get all excited about this one. And it takes you to Canada and the great hassle of customs.

it is always a bottle neck. this time it was worse because the tunnel is closed for a week. They misplace the cones sometimes and the lines are not clear. they need to repaint. 5. dollars now to cross. maybe that will change too.

The ambassador Bridge is the only Bridge to cross at Detroit. Has large amounts of trucks and can get lined up for a long time. Be prepared for wait times during the day and early evenings. A good option is the tunnel downtown for cars,...More

I guess "old whatz his name" is more interested in keeping his money rather than modernizing the bridge. There is constant trivial construction projects, mostly patching the patches, which shuts down a lane either in one or in both directions, causing considerable delays. Plus this...More

The best place will be any of the public parking along the Canadian/ Windsor side of the river along Riverside drive. There are plenty parking spaces and most of them are free.
