International Bridge

The Ogdensburg'Prescott International Bridge is a 1.5-mile-long suspension bridge connecting northern New York State with Canada. The bridge was completed in 1960 and is the newest bridge crossing over the St. Lawrence River and St. Lawrence Seaway System.

On the Canadian side, the bridge connects to Highways 416 and 401, providing easy access to Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto and points beyond.

On the American side, the bridge connects to New York State Route 37 and is just 40 minutes away from Interstate 81, providing convenient access to the U.S. Market for trucks and autos.

Wait times on the Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge are generally non-existent, making for quick delivery of goods and people.
