Dynamic Beast returns to harbour one last time

Traffic will be halted again next week as crews remove the final remnants of the old Johnson Street Bridge. The massive Dynamic Beast crane barge will return to the Inner Harbour beginning Thursday June 7. Crews will be removing four pieces of steel from the old bridge over the course of four days. The barge will park south of the bridge, blocking all marine traffic from passing underneath it from Thursday to Sunday. The new bridge will temporarily close to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians during non-peak traffic times Thursday and Friday between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those closures are expected to last about one hour in total. The structure will fully close to traffic on Saturday and Sunday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. for periods of several hours at a time. The lifts are weather dependent as the steel pieces cannot be lifted during high winds. If required the work could be extended if more time is needed to remove the old bridge. The best view of construction activities will be from the downtown side near Reeson Park or the Victoria West side at the waterfront walkway near the Delta Ocean Point Hotel.
