The site of the Sioux Narrows bridge, was the site of a famous Native battle and massacre between the local Cree and Ojibway tribes against the Sioux. The aggressive and dominating Sioux were secretly ambushed and defeated by the Cree and Ojibway at the narrows, hence the name Sioux Narrows.
A new bridge was completed in 2007 to replace the original wooden bridge that was once the longest single span wooden bridge in the world. With its signature wooden trusses incorporated into the design, the new bridge preserves the look and historical significance of the magic in Sioux Narrows.
