Pandora Avenue downtown Victoria block closed Tuesday to allow removal of crane

Full day closure to vehicles and cyclists, but pedestrians allowed to use south side

The removal of the tower crane which has been in use at the 1515 Douglas St. construction site will prompt the closure of Pandora Avenue between Blanshard and Douglas street to vehicles and cyclists from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday (Dec. 12).

Pedestrians can still access the sidewalk on the south side of Pandora, but are advised to use caution and pay attention to traffic control staff while in the construction zone.

The City and Campbell Construction are putting the word out to local businesses on that block of Pandora to help minimize impacts during the day-long closure. Traffic control staff and signage are located on both sides of the construction area to assist drivers and other road users during the closure.

Emergency services and BC Transit have also been notified and drivers and cyclists are encouraged to use alternate routes for the day.
