Confederation Bridge

About Confederation Bridge

        The Confederation Bridge is a world engineering feat. It connects Prince Edward Island to the mainland over the Northumberland Strait in the southern part of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.  At 12.9 kilometres or 8 miles long it is longest bridge in the world over ice-covered waters.  It takes approximately 10 minutes to across. At the highest point, the bridge reaches 60 metres above sea level, which allows large sea vessels, including cruise ships, to navigate under the bridge between its piers.
