BC Transportation posted a McKenzie interchange update to Twitter on Monday.
The government tweeted a time-lapse video of construction work on the McKenzie Interchange upgrades, showing construction crews placing concrete bridge beams that will make up the underpass at McKenzie Avenue.
Two spans of concrete – a 27-metre-long north span and 34-metre-long south span, each consisting of 15 concrete beams and weighing between 52 and 62 tonnes – were installed on Saturday and Sunday.
Crews successfully placed the concrete bridge beams that will make up the #BCHwy1 underpass at McKenzie Avenue this past weekend. Now crews begin work on the bridge deck approaches to connect McKenzie with Admirals Road over the highway. #yyj #saanich pic.twitter.com/Btl1df9noH
