Final steel shipment for Johnson Street Bridge to arrive Sunday
The final shipment of steel for the new Johnson Street Bridge is expected to arrive in Victoria at the Ogden Point terminal late on Sunday night.
The pieces included in the shipment are the bridge deck span that cars and bikes will travel across and the pedestrian and multi-use pathways. On Monday the bridge deck span will be offloaded onto a barge and lashed down in order to be transported under the current Johnson Street Bridge on Tuesday afternoon.
Once the steel arrives in the upper harbour it will be cleaned and then inspected for any possible damage during shipping. Work will then take place to attach the pedestrian walkway and the multi-use pathway to the deck span, as well as install the bridge lighting and the new bridge deck surface.
