AA Bridge

The 1,045-metre Deh Cho bridge (known locally as the AA bridge) crosses over the Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories – a monumental waterway where the seasonal freeze-up and ice break-up previously blocked an essential transport route for weeks at a time.

The arching cable-stayed superstructure towers over the flat Arctic landscape near Fort Providence and now provides year-round road passage across the Mackenzie to and from Yellowknife, replacing the winter ice bridge and summer ferry.
