Mac­don­ald Bridge closed on Fri­day nights

Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

HAL­I­FAX — If you need a bridge on Fri­day night, you’d bet­ter take the MacKay. Hal­i­fax Har­bour Bridges says the Mac­don­ald Bridge will be closed on Fri­day nights un­til fur­ther no­tice. The bridge has been closed from 7 p.m. till 5:30 a.m. from Sun­day to Thurs­day since March 1, and those clo­sures will now ex­tend to Fri­day as crews work to com­plete the re­deck­ing pro­ject known as the Big Lift. A news re­lease from Hal­i­fax Har­bour Bridges says con­struc­tion projects of this size “re­quire flex­i­bil­ity” and the com­pany is try­ing to min­i­mize the im­pact on rush hour traf­fic. The pro­ject will re­place the 60year-old sus­pen­sion struc­ture of the bridge.
