A view of the Ambassador Bridge from the Windsor side, looking towards Detroit. I took this picture early in the morning during my surprise trip home to visit my father last year, on my way to get some picture of the Detroit Waterfront at night and sunrise. (Those will be appearing in the blog soon…)
The Ambassador Bridge (officially the Ambassador International Bridge) is a suspension bridge that connects Detroit, Michigan, in the United States, with Windsor, Ontario, Canada. It is the busiest international border crossing in North America in terms of trade volume: more than 25 percent of all merchandise trade between the United States and Canada crosses the toll bridge. A 2004 Border Transportation Partnership study showed that 150,000 jobs in the region and US$13 billion in annual production depend on the Detroit–Windsor international border crossing.
