MacKay Bridge closure for Sept 15 is postponed

Updated Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Postponed: The MacKay Bridge will NOT be closed Sunday, September 15 from 5am until 10pm. Weather permitting the closure will take place Sunday,September 22.

Two lanes on the MacKay Bridge will be closed from 7pm, Friday, September 13 until 5:30am Monday, September 16 to continue with resurfacing the two Dartmouth-bound lanes.


The full bridge closure on September 22 is needed to remove an inspection platform at the top of the main cable. Its removal requires using several large cranes and the full width of the bridge. As a result it can’t safely be done with traffic on the bridge.

This work is highly weather dependent and will be rescheduled to the following Sunday if necessary.


There are no closures on the Macdonald Bridge.
