Small puffs of clouds linger above the International Bridge and the railway bridge which cross over the St. Mary's River in Ontario, Canada, creating a beautiful view from the Soo Locks. The International Bridge spans across the river and joins the USA making it easy for travelers to get from one place to the other. The railway bridge below the International Bridge provides faster transportation for a variety of goods to be delivered from the USA to Canada and vice versa.
The International Bridge was officially open in 1962 with construction beginning in 1960 and is a steel truss arch bridge with a suspended deck. A double arch span is prominent on the US side with a single arch span on the Canadian side. The double arch on the US side of the St. Mary's River crosses the 4 US Soo Locks with the single arch spanning the Canadian lock.... continue below the picture...
The total length of the International Bridge is 4.5 kilometers with the railway bridge crossing from Chippewa County in Michigan to the Algoma District in Ontario, Canada. The railroad bridge is an important landmark and is made up of a large number of smaller spans which was constructed in 1887.
From the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario, Canada, the beauty of both these bridges is outstanding.
