The International Falls Bridge connects Fort Frances, Ontario and International Falls, Minnesota. The bridge carries both road and rail traffic on the same level. Train traffic runs in the center section of the bridge which is only a single traffic lane wide. Trucks that are crossing also use the center section so they are subject to two-way traffic control. The toll booth for this bridge is on the Canadian side of the bridge when you come into Canada.
