The day has arrived!
After a nearly century-long chapter with the current Johnson Street bridge, the City of Victoria has announced March 31st as the official opening day of the new bridge.
From noon until 5pm, Victorians can gather around the old bridge to say goodbye, and be among the first group of people to walk across the bridge before it’s officially opened to vehicle traffic.
You can bring the whole family along for a giant picnic, with music and activities to celebrate the bridge’s completion, and to acknowledge the staple it’s been in the Victoria city-scape.
Come down and say hello to your new downtown neighbour!
