Photo: Confederation Bridge Prince Edward Island

Many vehicles cross the Confederation Bridge which spans the Northumberland Strait for nine miles in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

From Borden-Carleton in Queens, Prince Edward Island you get an exceptional view of the Confederation Bridge that crosses over Northumberland Strait. The bridge is approximately nine miles long and has made transportation between Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick much more convenient and quicker.Back in 1987, the Government of Canada created a proposal for an alternate route other than the ferry to get between these two locations and after many years of decision making, the deal was sealed. The construction of the bridge began in the fall of 1993 and it was not until May of 1997 that the Confederation Bridge was completed and officially opened.Two lanes of traffic can easily get back and forth over this bridge but the crossing is prohibited against pedestrians and cyclists. These passengers can catch a shuttle bus which deals solely with these type of travellers for a small fee. There is also a round trip toll for vehicles that cross the Confederation Bridge but it is still cheaper than the ferry crossing. ... continue below the picture...
