Thousand slands BridgeThe Thousand Islands International Bridge: www.tibridge.com This is a system of five bridges over the St. Lawrence River. Beginning on the Ontario side, the first bridge connects Ontario (near Highway 401 via Highway 137 and the Thousand Islands Parkway) to the Canadian Hill Island, then another span to the American Wellesley Island and then to the southern side of New York State, U.S.A. (Interstate 81) near the community of Alexandria Bay. If you are a Canadian citizen and are traveling from the Canadian side but only going as far as Hill Island, you don't need a passport.

It links Ontario, Canada, near Johnstown (Highway 16 with nearby Highways 401 and 416) to New York State, U.S.A., near Ogdensburg (New York State Route 812, connecting to New York State Route 37).
