On our recent tour of the Maritime Provinces we crossed from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island on the Confederation Bridge which opened on May 31,1997 and replaced the ferry service. It is 8 miles long and took 4 years and over 5,000 workers to build it. It is a curved bridge and the longest n the world, crossing ice-covered water. It is an easy and convenient way to get to Prince Edward Island. However, the high rails do prevent you from seeing the views. Bridge tolls are collected when leaving Prince Edward Island. It was a thrill to drive over it.

We stopped at a little park on the NB side before crossing the bridge. It cost $47 for a 2-axle vehicle which is paid on the PEI side. We had a SUV and were able to enjoy the spectacular view which reading other reviews people in cars cannot see as well. It is worth the crossing in a vehicle that is high enough.

This wasn’t too special of a bridge. It was quite long (12.9km I believe) but not too many views as there are rails to keep you from looking over. It was $55 to return on the bridge (van and tent trailer)

This 12.9 kilometer (8 mile) engineering wonder links Prince Edward Island to mainland New Brunswick. Confederation Bridge is the longest curved crossing in the world. It was a thill to drive from Cape Jourimain, New Brunswick to Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island. It opened May 21, 1997 after four years of construction. The bridge's graceful curves are not only a beautiful feature but there to ensure driver attentiveness. To minimize vehicle spray during wet weather, a special mixture was used for the bridge surface. A concrete barrier 1.1 meters in height acts as a wind break and contains 7000 drain ports. We opted to use the bridge rather than the ferry when leaving the Island and paid the 47 dollar round trip fee.

It takes 10 minutes to cross the bridge but you can’t see much of the view because of the concrete blocks that line the road. It costs nothing to go towards PEI. It costs $47 to leave it. An unique experience.
