The Ministry of Transportation will be closing the northbound lane of the Trans-Canada Highway next week to lift the Colwood overpass bridge for maintenance work.
Work is being done overnight on Wednesday April 18 from 1 to 5 a.m. to minimize traffic disruption. Northbound vehicles will be detoured onto the Colwood exit to Six Mile Road and then returning to the TCH.
During work on April 18, the bridge will be placed on temporary supports while the existing supports are re-enforced, which will increase the life span of the bridge, the Ministry of Transportation said in an email.
The highway will be closed again in a few weeks to reset the bridge on its permanent support structures.
