The Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge spans the St. Mary's River between the United States and Canada connecting the twin cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The bridge is operated by the International Bridge Administration under the direction of the Sault Ste. Marie Bridge Authority, a bi-national governing body consisting of four directors appointed by the Governor of Michigan and four appointed by the Canadian government-owned Federal Bridge Corporation.

Bridge website:  Peregrine falcon nest boxes have been installed on the International Bridge  since 2010 on both the U.S. and Canadian arches. Peregrines have been active at the International Bridge since 1999. The nest boxes are an ongoing commitment by the IBA to provide our falcons a habitat, as they like to nest on tall buildings, smokestacks and bridges. The peregrine falcon is listed as an endangered species in Michigan, protected by state law.
