Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority Compact

New York state created the Ogdensburg Bridge Authority in 1950 to handle certain transportation systems relative to the St. Lawrence River at Ogdensburg, New York. In the same year comparable acĀ¬tion was taken by the U.S. government. In 1952 Canada also enacted legislation validating and incorporating the Ogdensburg Bridge Authority. Subsequent amendĀ¬ments were adopted by Canada in 1956 and 1958, and by New York in 1960, adding port authority and other related functions.
