The Rainbow Bridge 

This is the Gateway between the Cities of Niagara Falls !

 You can cross the bridge by auto, on foot or bicycle.

It's also a great location for viewing the Falls & Friday night fireworks.

The current fare for crossing the bridge is $.50 for pedestrians and bicyclists (each way).

2014 toll fees: $3.50 U.S. or Canadian funds for autos (round trip).

Construction of the Rainbow Bridge started in May of 1940 and opened November 1st 1941. The deck of this bridge is 202 feet (61.5m) above the water and 950 feet (289.5m) in length. The water current under this bridge averages 26-30 miles per hour. The water depth is in excess of 175 feet (53m). In one minute it is estimated that six billion (6,000,000,000) pounds of water cross under the Rainbow Bridge. The bridges abutments are 50 feet (15m) above the water to avoid damage from ice in the river which incidentally destroyed the previous Honeymoon Bridge in January of 1938.
