Rainbow Bridge Border Crossing

The Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls is an international steel arch bridge across the Niagara River gorge, and is a world-famous tourist site.  It connects the cities of Niagara Falls New York in the US to Niagara Falls Canada.

The Rainbow Bridge was built near the site of the earlier Honeymoon Bridge, which had collapsed on January 27, 1938, due to an ice jam in the river. A joint Canadian and American commission had already been considering a new bridge to replace it, to which the collapse gave added urgency.

The bridge permits no commercial trucks; the nearest border crossing for these is the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.

The span of this bridge is 289.5  meters (950 feet).
