The P.E.I. government has issued tenders to remove above-ground concrete column structures at a Borden-Carleton fabrication yard that was used during the building of the Confederation Bridge.

The site is often referred to as the Stonehenge of P.E.I., due to the concrete pillars that dot its 45 hectares. The area is one of the first sites people see when they come to P.E.I. over the Confederation Bridge.

It has been unused since the bridge opened in 1997.

The province hopes to have the removal work completed by the summer.

Government officials say they have not found a developer yet or a project for the former Strait Crossing Fabrication Yard, which the province owns.

However, the province says it has had discussions with interested parties.

Finance P.E.I. and Innovation P.E.I. continue to look for development opportunities for the site.
