Swing of things

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

It was a foggy Sun­day morn­ing in parts of Cape Bre­ton, but that didn’t stop crews from con­tin­u­ing work on the new swing bridge over the St. Peter’s Canal. The new two-lane struc­ture, ex­pected to be ready to go in May, is be­ing built to re­place the one-lane span that was con­structed in 1936. The work is be­ing per­formed un­der the ju­ris­dic­tion of Parks Canada. The St. Peter’s Canal is a na­tional his­toric site. The canal, built in sev­eral phases be­tween 1854 and 1869, links Bras d’Or Lake with the At­lantic Ocean.
