Confederation Bridge

 

 

This 8 mile long bridge connects Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick (Canada). It is the longest bridge in the world to span ice covered waters. There is ice covering straits 5 months of the year. A special design was made to accommodate this, the bridge designers developed a 52 degree conical ice shield located on the pier shaft to break up the ice. This ice shield actually lifts the ice flow up so it breaks on its own weight.
