I have run through it twice (the Free Press Marathon) very interesting, but hot and humid!

You have one chance a year to see and experience this tunnel up close--by running in the Free Press Marathon or International Half-marathon. It's a novel running experience... read more

Headed to Windsor for dinner and took the Tunnel. It was convenient to downtown, Caesars and Erie Street dining. Was able to pay toll by cash or credit card. Interesting to note that toll can be paid by phone or with a transponder account. Remember to take your approved travel docs.

What can be said, it's exactly what it is said to be, a tunnel that goes from Detroit to Windsor....

May have been time of day but was much faster and closer to downtown than the bridge. Would use the tunnel again!

Just knowing you are under water makes this pretty cool to drive through. It is well lit so I didn't have any issues with my claustrophobia.

Easy way to cross the boarder. Have your documents ready for inspection when you get above ground. Be polite and you should sail right through.

You have one chance a year to see and experience this tunnel up close--by running in the Free Press Marathon or International Half-marathon. It's a novel running experience, running down the spiral ramp in Windsor and re-emerging in Detroit.The negatives are that it is stifling hot and very humid in the tunnel.

Pretty much what the title says. It's easy to get past and beautiful. Glossy tiles on the walls and roof, lighting is great and even gives you a nice feeling.

Perfectly located for getting into the heart of downtown Detroit. Efficient and luckily kind staff. The only issue is the fee to cross is not cheap $5 US

Why is this on here? The tunnel just gets you from Point A to B. Nothing special what so ever. And border crossing sucks, no one likes it.
