Privately-Owned International Bridge Increasing Toll Amount

(International Falls, MN) — The only privately-owned bridge connecting Minnesota and Canada is raising prices at the beginning of next month. Residents of International Falls began paying more to cross into northwestern Ontario last month, with a single trip moving from seven to nine-dollars. On January 1st, the price for a 12-trip discounted bridge card will jump from 22-dollars to 72-dollars. The owners of the bridge say the increase is needed to sustain operations, but local residents are asking U.S. and Canadian officials to get involved to keep any future increases from getting out of hand.
