Drivers are advised to watch for shifting lanes and temporary lane markers, between McCurdy Road and south of Aspen Road on Highway 1, as part of the ongoing work for the Malahat safety improvement project.
Beginning April 4, 2018, traffic will begin shifting into temporary alignments that will be in place 24/7 until mid-May, while crews lower the existing highway grade at two locations near Aspen Road, and replace a culvert under the highway south of McCurdy Road.
During construction, drivers should continue to expect delays of up to 20 minutes and intermittent stoppages to facilitate blasting work. The stoppages will occur from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and during the day outside of key commuter times, from Monday through Thursday.
Please obey the construction speed zone of 60 km/h at all times, and watch for construction workers, traffic controllers, signs and changing traffic patterns. Get the latest traffic advisories by following @DriveBC on Twitter or by visiting www.DriveBC.ca
