  • Decrepit. Pieces of concrete falling off, they put wood underneath to catch it as a fix. Owners refuse to repair citing the need for a second span for their repair plan. Strange that every other single span bridge can get by doing it's repairs just fine. How do they repair the Mackinac? Take the tunnel, same age as the bridge but actually maintained worth a damn. It's also cheaper!
  • Beautiful view. I beg my daughter and her family to come here (U.S.) since 9-11. Never been "accosted" on the Canadian side, although they sometimes can be passive/aggressive, like yesterday the guy did not open his window after I spent over 2hrs in a very disorganized line. My arthritis was killing me, I am old. I had to stare straight into the sun to determine when or if he was going to open up, so I was looking at a group of relief guards walking toward this booth, and I am thinking the worst. Well, I finally turn back (into the sun, cause you know you have to remove your sunglasses) and he is just sitting there looking at me saying nothing, creepy as hell. The U.S. side yells and acts like you are guilty of something (like shopping, I know better than to buy anything, and no I don't gamble on SSI). But yesterday the U.S. guy was really nice, pleasant, 1st time in all these years. Sorry, I have been waiting so long for a new bridge/tunnel/ferry and realized today that it will never happen in my lifetime...sigh!
  • It's pretty bad. The border crossing officers here are on a power trip. I've crossed about a dozen times and never once have I been greeted with a smile or heard a "have a nice day." I suppose I'd be disgruntled most of the time if I lived in Detroit... You might get lucky if you're crossing at night and only have a 10 minute wait. But any other time you'll be waiting for 45 minutes to an hour.
  • The bridge is perfectly fine. It often gets backed up with traffic and semi-trucks because the bridge is suck a good crossing. I do have to question calling the owners of the bridge "greed mongers". Is this coming.from the very same people who demand free college education, $15 dollar minimum wage for entry level jobs and everything else they can get for free?
  • Unfortunately I live in Windsor so I'm forced to cross here when I need to go to Detroit for work. This has to be the worst international border crossing in the country. I wish I could reroute to blue water. Every day trucks are lined up across the bridge and down the highway on both sides. If one side is clear the other side is awful. It's almost like clockwork how they rotate back and forth. They've been debating a new bridge for a decade now. Both cities have all the highway work done and now we just sit and wait while they fight with greed monger Matt Moron over building a new one. My suggestion is if you can avoid crossing here do it at all costs. I would suggest the tunnel but that's falling apart piece by piece with no real repairs being done.
