Ontario's Nipigon Bridge Fails . . . One Lane of Traffic Now Open!
Dear Website Visitor:
When we first heard the announcement for construction of the new bridge across the Nipigon River, we immediately recognized this as a tremendous marketing opportunity for Northwestern Ontario and particularly the Nipigon area. We realized that once completed, this unique bridge would become a world class attraction, setting it apart from all other regions of the province and attracting visitors from across North America and beyond!
A combination of ever changing climate, fast moving river, granite outcroppings and muskeg will certainly test the skills and abilities of the engineers and construction crews. All companies involved in the completion of this structure however, are highly experienced in meeting such challenges and are confident of celebrating the first vehicle crossing the bridge in 2017.
From the moment the first pile is driven into the ground - to the day the first vehicle crosses the bridge, our website promises to provide not only ongoing construction updates and progress reports, but area travel, accommodation and attraction details as well. We are hopeful this website will become a reliable online authority for anyone researching information on the bridge or planning to visit and spending time in the area.
We welcome any photos and editorial material which will serve to promote the Nipigon area
