It is one of Canada’s top engineering achievements of the 20th century.  It is a multi-span post-tensioned concrete box girder structure. Most of the curved bridge is 40m (131-ft) above water, and it contains a 60m (197-ft) high navigation span to permit ship traffic. The bridge rests on 62 piers, of which the 44 main piers are 250 m (820-ft) apart. The bridge is 11m (36-ft) wide.
