The Seal Island Bridge Under Construction 1961
With the third longest bridge span in the province, the Seal Island Bridge opened in 1961 as part of the Trans-Canada Highway project. The structure carries 2 traffic lanes of Highway 105, connecting Boularderie Island to the north side of the channel.
The bridge crosses part of the channel on a causeway connecting the north shore of the channel to Seal Island, a small wooded island. It consists of eight steel truss spans: a main arch of 152 m (500 ft), two side spans of 106 m (350 ft), and five approach spans of 76 m (250 ft).
