Proposed Detroit – Windsor Bridge c. 1925

An oldie but a goodie here today. An early rendering of the proposed Detroit-Windsor bridge that didn’t happen. Charles Evan Fowler an engineer from New York came up with this proposal, but he was unable to raise the funds needed to make this happen. This plan had traffic, pedestrians and streetcars above, and rail lines under the main roadway.
