UPDATED: Johnson Street Bridge closures coming as Dynamic Beast returns

The large crane barge will remove the remnants of the Blue Bridge between June 8 to 10

This version of the story contains updated information to the scheduling for the bridge removal.

The demolition of the old Johnson Street Bridge structure continues this week.

Starting Friday (June 8) the Dynamic Beast crane barge will return to Victoria to remove the remaining pieces of the old Blue Bridge. There are four large pieces of steel that still need to be removed, so temporary closures of the new bridge are expected between June 8 and 10.

The crane barge will be parked south of the new bridge and will block the marine channel.

Anticipated closure times include:

June 8 – temporary full bridge closures to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians during necessary crane lifts for approximately one hour between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

June 9 and 10 – temporary full bridge closures to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. as necessary for several hours at a time.
