Overnight closures will continue until late fall 2017 to complete the Big Lift. In addition, the Macdonald Bridge will be closed each weekend in August to install the remaining three expansion joints and complete final paving around the expansion joints. The expansion joints are approximately 2.6 m long plus two separate plates of 0.2 m long each to connect it to the bridge deck, to fill 3 m opening (10 ft).
