About The Big Lift

Halifax Harbour Bridges is embarking on a significant and necessary project beginning in early 2015: the replacement of the suspended spans of Macdonald Bridge.The bridge remains safe, but after 60 years the deck is wearing out and needs to be replaced. The project aims to extend the life of the bridge and reduce maintenance. The project includes: replacing the road deck, floor beams, stiffening trusses and suspender ropes on the suspended spans of the Macdonald Bridge. Find Out More >
