Located at Esquimalt Road and Harbour Road, the push-button activated traffic signal will allow pedestrians to safely cross Esquimalt Road and access the sidewalk on the west side of the bridge. Cyclists will also have a push-button to access the east bound traffic lane over the bridge. The new signal crossing replaces the existing route off Harbour Road over the rail overpass, which will become a construction area.
The detour will remain in place until the new Johnson Street Bridge is complete and open to traffic in 2016. Motorist, pedestrians, and cyclist are advised to exercise caution while becoming familiar with the new intersection.
