ABOVE: Crews work to slowly lower the bascule pier box into the harbour. The temporary underwater structure will allow the new bascule pier to be constructed in the harbour under dry conditions. The bascule pier is the part of the bridge that will contain the mechanical and electrical systems that move the bridge open and close for marine traffic.

New road on the west side of the Johnson Street Bridge. The new road will eventually connect with the new bridge. Opening the new road will minimize future impacts to motorists and create more usable space for the contractor.
