Nipigon River BridgeOverview
Upon completion in 2017, the $106-million Nipigon River Bridge will be the first cable-stayed bridge of its kind on the Ontario highway system. The 252 meters (827 feet) bridge will consist of three towers with cables supporting the bridge deck and a separate sidewalk for pedestrians.
Nipigon River is renowned for its brook trout and the bridge is located directly in a spawning area, presenting environmental challenges.
