The ministry thanks everyone in the area for their ongoing patience surrounding this project. Drivers are reminded to watch for traffic control personnel and intermittent single-lane alternating traffic.
The traffic-stoppage schedule was based on extensive community feedback. The schedule was adjusted to provide more consistency for travel planning and to accommodate evening ferry schedules.
The Kennedy Hill Safety Improvements project includes upgrading 1.5 kilometres of the Pacific Rim Highway along Kennedy Hill adjacent to Kennedy Lake.
