Every summer for many years we drive to Newfoundland from PA and so cross the green swing bridge under the welcome to Cape Breton sign. The bridge connects mainland Nova Scotia to Cape Breton Island. Our trip isn't complete without stopping at the pullout before the bridge. We climb the hill with the graves and tombstones so old that you can barely make out the letters to the lighthouse. From there we get a good view of the canal and the locks that equalize the water level so a vessel can pass. There is a control tower. The bridge actually swings or pivots so a vessel can pass through. How interesting. Good views of the water from the lighthouse too. It is worth the climb.

I guess to have a fixed link to Cape Breton Island, it wasn't just a causeway they had to build. There's a large mine next door to the causeway, and big ships need in and out. We would have loved to see the turning bridge in action (even with the traffic disturbance it would cause) but no luck.

Not sure why the Canso Canal is even mentioned but I guess watching a bridge turn sideways on a column is intriguing.

Cross the canal to Cape Breton and you are entering heaven. The canal is scenic and a few pictures are necessary.

I feel like this location is tremendously overrated- maybe its just me. Its a bridge that everyone must take to access cape Breton island. Canals are always impressive, but this is not suited to have visitors and is not tourist friendly- just glance as you drive by, maybe pull off. There is much more incredible scenery on the roads all around this area.
