MacKay Bridge Weekend Closure Update
From Friday, Dec. 1 at 7 PM to Monday, Dec. 4 at 5:30 am.
The MacKay Bridge will be closed again this weekend as workers replace the second of two multi-tonne deck panels that showed indications of fatigue cracks.
The project involved 90 workers and required a 100-tonne crane to remove and replace the 10m x 5.5m panels. More than 2,000 structural bolts needed to be removed from the old plate before new ones could be installed to hold the new plate in place.
The same work will be repeated this weekend on a different section of the bridge.
