PCL Construction has started in-water work at the Johnson Street Bridge site.
For safety reasons, marine access will be limited to the main (centre) navigation channel while work is underway. The east and west channels and surrounding areas outside of the main navigation channel will be closed to all marine traffic. This includes recreation boats, kayaks, outrigger canoes, and dragonboats.
All vessels are asked to reduce speed and exercise extra caution while transiting through the area.
Work will take place during daylight hours and will continue until further notice.

The current bridge will remain open to pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles, and marine traffic until the new bridge opens in late 2015.
