Macdonald Bridge closed to traffic 11pm until 5:30am July 22 and 23rd

The Macdonald Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic from 11pm until 5:30am Tuesday, July 22, and Wednesday, July 23.

If a third night is required the bridge will close 11pm Thursday, July 24 and reopen 5:30am

The work is wind and weather dependent so the closures will be postponed if necessary.

The bike lane and sidewalk will remain open.

The closures are needed to survey the bridge. For complete accuracy there can be no traffic on the bridge when the survey is being completed.

The work is related to the Macdonald Bridge suspended spans redecking project (also known as The Big Lift). While the first segment will not be replaced until August 2015, this preparatory work must be completed now.
