To this day, the Windsor/Detroit tunnel remains the World's only international underwater automotive border crossing. It is the second busiest crossing between Canada and the United States, next to the Ambassador Bridge, which is also located in Windsor.

Construction took about 26 months to finish and was completed almost one year ahead of schedule.

The method used to construct the tunnel was immersed tube (sections of steel tube floated into place and sunk into a trench dug in the river bottom), as was done in the earlier Posey Tube. The tunnel sections have three main levels. The bottom level brings in fresh air under pressure, which is forced into the mid level, where the traffic lanes are located, and the third level is where the engine exhaust is forced into and vented at each end of the tunnel.

Total cost of construction was approximately $25 million US dollars (around $358 million in 2016 dollars).[5] The river section of the tunnel was connected to bored tunnels on both banks. The tubes were then covered over in the trench by 4 to 20 feet (1.2 to 6.1 m) of mud. Because the tunnel essentially sits on the river bottom, there is a wide no-anchor zone enforced on river traffic.
