While the new Johnson Street Bridge opened to traffic at the start of April, the work continues on a new pedestrian viewing platform—and the City of Victoria is giving folks a sneak peek!
The platform will be reachable by a pedestrian-only walkway on the south side of the bridge.
From there, pedestrians can get a close-up look at the machinery in the bascule pier that operates the bridge’s lifting mechanism.
In a video posted to Twitter on Friday, the city gave Victorians a glimpse at what to expect when the pedestrian walkway opens later this month.
Watch the video in the tweet below:
