Two local bridges that span the St. Lawrence between Ontario and New York State allow ready travel to and from our American friends. The Prescott-Ogdensburg International Bridge sits right at the intersection of Hwys. 401 and 416, making it easy to visit the United States for business or pleasure. Major NY educational institutions such as St. Lawrence University and Clarkson University are also less than a 30-minute drive away.
And the 1000 Islands International Bridge that crosses between Ivy Lea ON and Alexandria Bay NY connects Hwy. 401 with Interstate 81. Along with nearby destinations like Watertown NY, I-81 takes travelers directly to Syracuse NY and points beyond in Pennsylvania, while also coming close to Washington DC.
