The Point Ellice bridge or Bay Street bridge will be reduced to one-lane traffic in the evening starting next week.

According to a statement from the City of Victoria, the final phase of the Point Ellice Bridge Rehabilitation Project starts on Monday, December 9th.

To facilitate construction, the traffic will be reduced to one lane as the eastbound lane will be closed to traffic between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. for the rest of the month.

While pedestrian and wheelchair access will be maintained at all times, cyclists traveling eastbound will be required to dismount and walk their bicycles across.

This last leg of the project will see the removal of scaffolding as the contractor demobilizes from the work site.

The $6.1 million project includes repairs to the concrete deck, rust protection of the steel, resurfacing the bridge deck and stripping and painting the steel on the underside of the bridge.

As work continues, motorists and the general public are advised to be cautious while traveling near the construction zone.
