The Star Attraction of Souris is the Souris Swinging Bridge, Canada’s longest historic suspension bridge measuring 582 feet or 177.4 metres. The bridge was built in 1904 to connect the two banks of the Souris River and was rebuilt in 1977 after being destroyed in the flood of 1976. Sadly, high flood waters once again destroyed the bridge in 2011 but thankfully, a spectacular new swinging bridge has been completed and opened as of August 2013. It measures 184 metres tip to tip and regains the title of the longest swinging pedestrian bridge in Canada! Not all who visit the bridge have the courage to cross –do you?
