For the safety of bridge users and employees HHB monitors wind speed closely.
Here are the protocols followed and how it impacts the bridges:
- High winds MacKay (75 KPH) – Speed reduced to 50 KPH
- High winds MacKay (75 to 85 KPH) – Bridge patrol ready to close bridge to high-sided vehicles
- High winds Macdonald (75 to 85 KPH) – sidewalk and bike lane close
- High winds MacKay (85 KPH) – closed to high sided vehicles
- High winds Macdonald and MacKay (120 KPH) – bridges close
