**** HHB Media Release
Please note. There is a change to the weekend closure of the Macdonald Bridge
The road deck of the Macdonald Bridge will be closed to traffic 7:00pm Friday, July 5 until 9:00pm Saturday, July 6. The bridge will be closed again 1:30am Sunday, July 7 until 4:30am Sunday, July 7.

The closures are required to replace bearings on two of the bridge piers of the Macdonald Bridge, located on the approach span of the bridge in Dartmouth.
