Please see attached file for a map of the LSSU Norris Center.
Sponsored by the International Bridge Authority and the Chamber of Commerce from both cities, organizers remind walkers to bring a passport or other approved I.D. found at the Soo Area Info, International Bridge Customs section of this site. (PLEASE, contact the Sault Ste. Marie Area Chamber of Commerce for more details at 906-632-3301). Bus transportation is available to bring walkers from Ontario to the starting point or, afterward, return those with vehicles waiting to the Norris Center for a small fee of $2. Visitors will find plenty to do back on the Michigan side, with a full offering of museums, boat tours, beaches, parks and more open to the public. For more information please e-mail the Sault Area Chamber of Commerce at or call (906)632-3301.
