Fort Frances–International Falls International Bridge
The Fort Frances – International Falls International Bridge is a privately owned international toll bridge connecting the towns of Fort Frances, Ontario and International Falls, Minnesota across the Rainy River.
The bridge toll is charged on northbound traffic. The cash toll for automobiles is $6, with discounted multi-trip swipe cards available at area grocery stores. There is no toll collected on southbound trips or for pedestrian traffic.
The bridge carries both road and rail traffic, without grade separation. The rails run along the west side of the bridge, which also carries a pipeline between the paper mills. The east side of the bridge carries two lanes of automobile traffic, one in each direction. Trucks and buses are directed to drive on the rail portion of the bridge, which is capable of handling heavier loads.
A dam constructed in 1905 lies immediately west of the bridge. The reservoir to the east of the dam conceals the rapids for which International Falls was named.
