Auckland Transport says Victoria Street West will be open to traffic about 8pm or 9pm tonight,.
However, Nelson Street between Victoria Street West and Fanshawe Street is likely to be closed until the middle of the week.
Further lane closures are expected at off-peak times to allow scaffolding to be put up, Auckland Transport said.
