Fort Street closure planned for Sunday

A whole block of the downtown Victoria street will be shut down from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Victoria residents and visitors are encouraged to plan ahead for their downtown driving. Traffic will be diverted on Fort Street all day Sunday, so alternative routes will need to be explored.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. the block running from Blanshard to Quadra streets will be shut down while a crane is removed.
