The top of the graphic states "Goodbye to the old. Hello to the new." The mobile phones are on a green background that features an image of the MacKay Bridge.

Halifax Harbour Bridges is excited to welcome drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and bridge enthusiasts alike to its new website, halifaxharbourbridges.ca — which launched on Monday, Aug. 21. 2023.  

The design of the new and improved website is driven by the three main priorities of our bridge users: traffic information, MACPASS information, and crossing information.  

Site visitors will now find the feeds for live cameras, along with current traffic volumes for each bridge, at the top of the homepage, as well as on the new Traffic page. The Traffic page also features a live, interactive map integration showing real-time traffic flows on both the bridges, as well as the roads leading onto and off both.

HHB is excited to also provide bridge users with improved ways of getting updates on bridge maintenance and closures, as well as bridge news and events. 

Users can enjoy easier navigation to key pages such as information on MACPASS; details on how to cross, including toll rates and vehicle restrictions; and details on using the active transportation lanes.  

HHB is also proud to showcase the work of local Halifax photographers, with beautiful images of both the Macdonald and MacKay bridges, throughout the website.

The launch of the new website comes on the same day that HHB retires the HHB Traffic App. The HHB Traffic App was originally launched as part of the 2015 Big Lift project, and reconfigured to a traffic app once that was completed.  

Stay tuned to the new halifaxharbourbridges.ca in the coming weeks for more exciting news about a new mobile app that will help users get all their bridge and MACPASS info on the go.
