BRIDGE TAKEDOWN: Trying again today in Victoria

High winds Tuesday forced cancellation of crane work that is part of dismantling of old bridge

High winds Tuesday forced the cancellation of work to begin dismantling the old Johnson Street Bridge.

The work, being undertaken with the help of the Dynamic Beast crane barge, is scheduled to get underway today, weather permitting, and continue tomorrow, with traffic detours planned between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. both days, with a brief new-bridge opening set for between 4 and 6 p.m. to commuter traffic. The route will be opened for traffic again between 7 and 9 a.m. Thursday morning as well.
