New Johnson Street Bridge Begins to Take Shape

Bridge work in the harbour will become much more visible over the coming weeks as crews install large concrete sections of the new Johnson Street Bridge. Once in place, the concrete spans will form the road approaches to the new steel structure, due to arrive in the summer of 2016 with the bridge opening to the public in the summer of 2017.

To accommodate the work, the marine channel under the Johnson Street Bridge will be closed to all marine traffic from Monday, September 14 to Friday September 18. This closure includes all vessels including industrial and commercial vessels, and smaller boats such as sailboats, canoes, and kayaks.

On Monday, September 14, from approximately 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., the Johnson Street Bridge will be closed to all pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles to allow a final piece of the rail span to be removed and a section of the new bridge installed in its place.
