How long is the Confederation Bridge?
Why was it necessary for the engineers who built the Confederation Bridge to study the climate and storms in the Northumberland Strait before beginning to build?
Prince Edward Island is only connected to the rest of Canada by The Confederation Bridge. The bridge is curved, 12.9 kilometers long and is the longest bridge in the world crossing ice-covered water. More than a decaded after its construstion, it endures as one of Canada's top engineering achievements of the 20th century.
