These two bridges are silhouetted against the sunset in the sky as it sets over Sault Ste Marie in Ontario. This view of the International Bridge is looking up as it was taken from the Soo Locks that are situated under this famous bridge. The bridge furthest away is a small bridge across the lock.

The International Bridge connects two cities that both go by the name of Sault Ste Marie, one in Michigan and one in Ontario. It spans the St. Mary's River and allows vehicles to pass between the two countries, while the Soo Locks allows ships and other vessels. This bridge opened on October 31 1962 and is about four-and-a-half kilometres long.

Many people cross this bridge everyday in their cars as it is a convenient way to travel between the United States and Canada. The Canadian end leads right into the Sault Ste Marie city center so it is even more convenient for people to leave directly from the city and within a short while end up in a different country. A truck bypass route had to be built at this location however, as trucks traveling to such a busy city street was viewed as a safety concern.
