The entrance plaza to the bridge sits across from the Mexicantown Welcome Center and the Mercado. It is a really great-looking space, with places to sit and admire the impressive suspension bridge, the Ambassador Bridge, and the city skyline. The designers of the space have mixed in a little wood and greenery to soften the concrete and steel, so that it feels like an outdoor room. It also has plenty of bike parking for the two-wheelers.
MDOT press release on the bridge opening.
The bridge and plaza were designed with great attention to detail. Functional elements of the bridge, such as lighting, benches, and even the safety fencing carry out the look, feel and concept of the soaring suspension tower in an organic way.
