Arctic Tuk Crane in Johnson Street Bridge Marine Channel Next Week

The skyline around the new Johnson Street Bridge will include one of the largest cranes in Western Canada next week. The Arctic Tuk – the same crane that removed the rail span from the existing Johnson Street Bridge in 2012 – will stand high above the new bridge project as it places the concrete spans that will form the road approaches.

To accommodate this work, the marine channel under the Johnson Street Bridge will be closed to all marine traffic from Monday, September 14 to Friday September 18. In addition to the marine closure, 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.

Periodic traffic delays throughout the week are expected as some short term bridge lifts may be required to accommodate the work.
