City releases sneak peek at the new Johnson Street Bridge viewing platform (VIDEO)


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.
