Macdonald Bridge closed on Friday nights
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.
