The twin bridges completed in May 2002 (see Road Talk, August 2002), stand as a testament to the unsurpassed skill and ingenuity of the 417 team. Through cooperation, thorough analysis and original design concepts, the team was able to erect a structure that serves as a key transportation link to Ontario drivers while preserving and enhancing the natural environment. The Mississippi River project exemplifies MTO's dedication to environmental sustainability and transportation innovation. Congratulations to the 417 team for this tremendous accomplishment!
