First Johnson Street Bridge Steel Shipment Arrives This Week As Second Shipment Leaves China

August 21 2017

VICTORIA BC – The first shipment of steel for the new Johnson Street Bridge arrived in B.C. on Sunday and over the next few days it is being loaded onto a barge at the Lynnterm Terminal in North Vancouver for transport to Victoria. The shipment is expected to arrive in Victoria at the Point Hope Shipyard later this week.

The second shipment of steel is today being loaded onto a ship in China and will leave for British Columbia this week.  It is scheduled to arrive in Victoria at the end of September.

The first shipment of steel includes the north and south rings, the lower counterweight and the temporary structure (false work) used to support the various components of the bridge during installation.

The second shipment of steel includes the two steel trusses, the deck that cars and bikes will travel across, and the pedestrian and multi-use pathways.
