Faits

  • The bridge is made up of 21,000 tons of steel, and the roadway rises as high as 152 feet above the Detroit River.
  • The bridge has a 1,870-foot (569.98 meter) center span, which at completion in 1929, made it the longest suspension bridge in the world.
  • The bridge towers rise from concrete piers. The twin towers rise 386 feet above the river bed, and plunge 115 feet below the Detroit River bed.
  • Originally painted gloss black, the bridge was repainted teal during a refurbishment in 1995-2000.
  • The Ambassador Bridge is the busiest international border crossing in North America, carrying more than 25% of all trade between the United States and Canada.
  • In September 2017 it was announced the owners had received approval to build a replacement span by the Canadian government. If a new span is built it would require the dismantling of the Ambassador Bridge immediately after the new bridge opens.
