Biography/HistoryThe Four Bears Bridge was originally constructed in 1934. The bridge replaced Verendrye Bridge, and spans the Missouri River on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. The bridge was moved in 1955 due to the construction of the Garrison Dam and subsequent creation of Lake Sakakawea. A new Four Bears Bridge was constructed in 2005.
