Johnson Street Bridge update positive

Victoria project on budget and on schedule, councillors hear

The Johnson Street Bridge replacement project is on schedule and on budget, councillors heard Thursday.

Construction will begin April 15 on temporary trestles that will support cranes and other equipment.

City crews will also begin replacing century-old sewage and storm water pipes near the area.

“One never wants to be dismissive of some of the risk concerns … but we’ve laid off some risk to the builder, and we haven’t gone into the contingency funds,” Coun. Chris Coleman said.

Early tests show no signs of human remains or other archeological discoveries that could delay the project.
