Seaway Skyway, Johnston ON

This bridge has three names:

  • Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge (even though it off-ramps into the town of Johnston, a few kilometres east of Prescott)
  • St. Lawrence Bridge (named for the river it crosses)
  • Seaway Skyway (for obvious reasons)

I had set out to add a photo shoot of the Thousand Islands Bridge to a family visit in Kingston.  Unfortunately, the weather was showery and grey. Disastrously, pedestrian access to the bridge was closed until May.  This was as close as I got.

But the river goes for a long way, and the Big Guy suggested we try for the next crossing, at Prescott.  And so we did, finding a lovely bridge with impressive pylons and a central suspension portion to allow for river traffic.  And a little bit of sun.
