Thousand Islands Bridge
The Thousand Islands Bridge is an international bridge over the Saint Lawrence River connecting northern New York in the United States with southeastern Ontario in Canada. Constructed in 1937, with additions in 1959, the bridge spans the United States-Canada border in the middle of the Thousand Islands region, from which it derives its name. The bridge is administered by the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority, an international agency. The actual international border bridge crossing is between Wellesley Island in the United States and Hill Island in Canada.

The bridge is actually not a single bridge but rather a series of bridges that span parts of the St. Lawrence River, ultimately connecting both banks. The southern end of the bridge connects with Interstate 81 and the northern end of the bridge connects to Highway 401 via Highway 137. There is also an interchange with the Thousand Islands Parkway on the Ontario side.

Thousand Island Bridge Authority is conducting a study among other things, determine when the bridge will reach its operational limits and how to reduce delay on the bridge.
