Johnson Street Bridge Closed to Vehicles August 13 For Final Paving

July 27 2017

VICTORIA, BC — On Sunday, August 13 the Johnson Street Bridge and road approaches between Harbour Road and Wharf Street will be closed from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., while paving takes place between Wharf Street and the new bridge.  Starting Monday, July 31st, drivers and cyclists can expect daytime congestion and delays in this area, as preparation work takes place in advance of final paving.


The work from July 31 – August 12 will require periodic lane closures between the hours of 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Access across the Johnson Street Bridge in both directions will be maintained at all times, however, minor delays are anticipated. During the August 13th closure for final paving, the bridge and the streets on the downtown side of the bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic, however pedestrian and cyclist connections between downtown and the Victoria West neighbourhood will be maintained.

Advance warning signs will be posted on streets approaching the work area to advise motorists of traffic changes. People walking and riding bikes should also look for re-routing signage, and follow directions from flaggers to make their way around the work zone. Commuters are advised to consider alternate routes to avoid delays during these times.

Paving is being done at this time to take advantage of favourable weather conditions.
