Nipigon River Bridge

The Nipigon River Bridge is an important feature of the community. With assisting traffic to cross the Nipigon River and Canada as a whole.

Opened in the spring of 2017, the Nipigon River Bridge replaced a 40 year old steel plated girder bridge.  The new bridge is a cable-stayed bridge, the first of its kind in Ontario.  The precast towers of the bridge serve as a signature aesthetic feature and stands 246 feet tall.

The Nipigon River Bridge has a viewing platform facing the river and is a great spot to catch the sunset.  Walking paths take you across or under the bridge.  

Check out the bridge during the night hours when it lights up the sky with warm blue hues.
