Traffic changes are coming to the west side of the Johnson Street Bridge in the coming weeks

Traffic tweaks coming as Johnson Street Bridge work ramps up

E&N Trail will be closed near bridge to allow for ongoing realignment of roads, public spaces

  • Apr. 10, 2014 8:00 a.m.

Ongoing construction on the new Johnson Street Bridge means the nearby E&N Trail will soon be closed to cyclists and pedestrians.

In the coming weeks, the E&N Trail will terminate at Tyee Road, but pedestrians can still access the bridge from the Esquimalt Road sidewalk or Westsong Walkway along the Inner Harbour.

The existing Delta Ocean Pointe entrance off the Johnson Street Bridge will close after crews construct a new vehicle entrance off Esquimalt Road this month, according to a City of Victoria release.

A new lefthand turn into the hotel will be available to vehicles arriving from downtown, while bus traffic, eastbound traffic and vehicles leaving the hotel parking lot will use Tyee Road. The two westbound lanes exiting the bridge will remain in place.

The city is advising drivers to expect disruptions at Esquimalt and Harbour roads between May and August as Harbour Road is widened and realigned for the new bridge span.
