Saanich 2014 in preview: Bridging the gap, finally

In the lengthy saga that has been the Craigflower Bridge rebuild project, the only thing that’s safe to assume is there are no definite timelines.

With construction hampered by steel shortages and a seismic redesign in 2013, as well as postponing the project entirely in 2012, closing the chapter that has been the replacement project will be well received by residents and area businesses.

Currently the bridge is slated to open in April or May, but “springtime” is the projected opening date.

Once complete, the $17-million project connecting Saanich and View Royal will be a three-lane steel bridge with separated bike lanes and sidewalks.
