I hate to be picky but the fixed link or Confederation Bridge doesn't cross the Bay of Fundy. However, I think a bridge to Nova Scotia is a great suggestion. It would be about 50 km across at this point (Saint John) and would employ some of us structural types for a good number of years into the future.
