**** HHB Media Release
The MacKay Bridge will be closed to all traffic 5:00am Sunday, September 22 until 5:00am Monday, September 23.
Two lanes on the MacKay Bridge will be closed from 7pm, Friday, September 20 until the bridge closes Sunday at 5:00am to continue with resurfacing the two Dartmouth-bound lanes.
The full bridge closure is needed to remove an inspection platform at the top of the main cable. Its removal requires using several large cranes and the full width of the bridge. As a result it can’t safely be done with traffic on the bridge. This work is highly weather dependent and will be rescheduled if necessary.
There are no closures on the Macdonald Bridge.
