Proposed Detroit River Memorial Tunnel – 1918

0119

This rendering above was proposed in July 1918, involved six giant elevators to take cars down to a road, where you would drive under the river, and take an elevator up at the other end. The plan also called for pedestrians as well.

Just one of many ideas floated that never came to be, for ways to go over or under the river. It would be another decade before a car tunnel under the river would be a reality.
