The closing of the Point Ellice Bridge to eastbound traffic — going toward downtown — is set to start Tuesday, May 21, and will continue until approximately the end of October.

The 61-year-old span, also known as the Bay Street Bridge, is being partially closed for repairs and upgrading.

Victoria’s assistant director of transportation Philip Bellefontaine has said the refurbishment will add 30 years to the bridge’s life.

Pedestrian and wheelchair access will be maintained during the $6.1-million project. Eastbound cyclists will have to dismount and walk. Bus service has been rerouted by B.C. Transit.
