Portage Creek Bridge is located in Victoria, British Columbia (BC). The bridge crosses Interurban Road and the Colquitz River at McKenzie Avenue. Built in 1982, the Ministry of Transportation and Highways Bridge Engineering Branch designed the bridge prior to the introduction of current bridge seismic design codes and construction practices. The original design did not meet today’s standard requirements for resisting earthquake forces, so the bridge was retrofitted to bring it up to code.
