The new Johnson Street Bridge (flying.niimbus/Instagram)

If you’re out and about late on Tuesday night and happen to be in the downtown area, make plans to avoid crossing the Johnson Street Bridge.

According to a City of Victoria advisory, our newest bridge will be closed for four hours on Tuesday, July 24th, starting at 10 p.m.

It will stand upright and be closed to all traffic in order to allow PCL (the construction company) to conduct a scheduled inspection of the structure.

All traffic – drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians – will be redirected to the Bay Street bridge between approximately 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. tonight.

We know this city. You should too. 👊
