The Detroit-Windsor tunnel was completed in 1930. It was an incredible feature of engineering at the time. It connects Jefferson Avenue in Downtown Detroit, to Goyeau Street in Windsor. This tunnel was only the 3rd under water vehicular tunnel in the United States when constructed, the other two being in the New York City area, and is just under a mile in length. It is also the third under water international crossing in the World. The Michigan Central Railway which crosses nearby, was the 2nd, and the St. Clair tunnel between Port Huron, Michigan, and Sarina, Ontario was the first. Although, the Detroit-Windsor tunnel was the first vehicular under water international crossing.

The Detroit-Windsor tunnel is the 2nd bussiest crossing between Canada and the United States, after the near by Ambassador Bridge, as an average 13,000 vehicles use the tunnel per day.

In Windsor, You can see many Canadian and U.S. citizens with their passports ready as they make their way through the Canadian toll, and on their way to the United States:

In Detroit, Windsorites leave work and head back to their native land after a long, hard work day, and Detroiter's pick up their vehicles from the parking garage, as Detroit and Windsor have worked out an international shuttle program, at-least in my SC they do.
