Description

This video is a short look at the Confederation Bridge from the Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island side. The Confederation Bridge is a bridge spanning the Northumberland Strait, linking Prince Edward Island with New Brunswick, Canada. The bridge is a two-lane highway toll bridge that carries the Trans-Canada Highway between Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island (at Route 1) and Cape Jourimain, New Brunswick (at Route 16). It is a multi-span post-tensioned concrete box girder structure. Most of the curved bridge is 40 metres (131 ft) above water, and it contains a 60 m (197 ft) high navigation span to permit ship traffic. The bridge rests on 62 piers, of which the 44 main piers are 250 m (820 ft) apart. The bridge is 11 m (36 ft) wide. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confederation_Bridge
