Wind impacts on the bridges

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
