A little bit of infrastructure porn for Week 10, inspired by some of Bill Schwab’s recent photos of this Bridge from the Detroit side of the River. As I was heading into Detroit for the weekend I decided to stop off and get a shot from the Windsor side. The bridge also serves as one of the busiest border crossings in North America, and is one of two ways to cross the Detroit river, the other being the tunnel (which I oddly enough took). Officially opened in 1929 it was designed to ease the congestion in the tunnel, without obstructing lake freighter traffic, and for a while it was had the longest suspended central span in the world, at least until the George Washington Bridge was completed in 1931.
