South, Klondike Hwy, Stikine Region, BC V0W 1A0, Canada

The Yukon Suspension Bridge is a pedestrian cable suspension bridge located on mile 46.5 on the South Klondike Highway in Northern British Columbia, Canada. It is 200 ft (60.96 metres) long and stretches 57 ft (17.36 metres) over the Tutshi River Canyon. There is an admission charge and it is visited by over 25 000 people every summer between the months of May and September. The Yukon Suspension Bridge is a world-class visitor attraction dedicated to providing an excellent overview of the history and nature of the areas surrounding our location, in museum quality outdoor interpretive exhibits.

The Yukon Suspension Bridge was completed in 2006 by Surespan Construction Group. The bridge's initial estimated cost for construction was one million Canadian dollars but due to the remote location and limitations on building supplies upon completion costs grew to three million Canadian dollars. In 2011 the bridge was privately acquired and now is locally owned and operated.
