HHB marks the passing of Queen Elizabeth II 

September 8, 2022

Halifax Harbour Bridges joins with Nova Scotians, Canadians and citizens of the world to mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Our flags are at half-mast at our toll plazas and we will be flying two Canadian flags from the towers of the Macdonald Bridge to honour and celebrate the accomplishments of the 96-year-old sovereign.

Taking the throne on Feb. 6, 1952, the queen ruled for more the 70 years and was the second-longest reigning monarch in world history.
