Confederation bridge

August 8, 2019

Here are photos I found online of the massive bridge I drove over to get out to Prince Edward Island last night.  I was impressed with it from the moment I first saw it as I approached (illustrated perfectly in the first photo):

As you can see, it takes you high over the water very quickly for the entire length of it, unlike the Chesapeake Bay Bridge near Norfolk, Virginia, which runs very low over the water.  There is also a “hump” which takes you even higher for a short distance so big ships may pass underneath without disrupting vehicular traffic on the bridge:

The bridge is 8 miles long, one of the longest in the world built over, at times, icy water.
