MacKay Bridge

One lane Dartmouth bound will be closed on the MacKay Bridge Saturday, July 14 from 6:00am to 4:00pm to conduct waterproof and ashphalt repairs. This work can only be done at certain temperatures and therefore, can’t be done at night.



HHB advises the public that overnight bridge closures to complete the work for the Big Lift will begin Tuesday, July 3.

Ten weeks of overnight closures are scheduled from 8pm – 5:30am four nights a week (Monday – Thursday).

The overnight closures include the sidewalk and bike lane. The shuttle service will be provided.

The remaining work includes:

  • Installing Bosun’s chair rail
  • Bird screening
  • Hand strand access to the main cable
  • Main cable fire protection
  • Completing the main cable dehumidification system

HHB thanks the public for their patience throughout this once-in-a-lifetime project to ensure the Macdonald Bridge is safe for at least another generation.
