Temporary Detour on Harbour Road at Esquimalt Road

Vehicle access to Harbour Road is closed at Esquimalt Road to facilitate construction of the new four-way intersection.

Access for cyclists and pedestrians will continue to be maintained on Harbour Road, however cyclists heading southbound from the Galloping Goose trail are encouraged to use Tyee Road to Esquimalt Road as they will be required to dismount for a short section if they continue south on Harbour Road.

Vehicle access to Harbour Road will be maintained at Tyee Road.

The closure will remain in place until mid-September as crews complete the reconfiguration and paving for the new intersection. The bridge will continue to remain open during construction.

This October, the new intersection will open with a new extension of Esquimalt Road connecting to the existing bridge. The new intersection will include new sidewalks, crosswalks and a new extension of Harbour Road, connecting to the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort and future waterfront green space.

All major road work related to the bridge project will be complete on the west side of the bridge by the end of 2014.
