BC Transit will be implementing a route detour on Route 6, the Crofton to Chemainus run, from Sept. 12-16 while Crofton Road is closed for repairs to the Otto Bridge.

Route 6 will be split into two sections to accommodate the construction and still provide transit to customers.

The first route, from Duncan to Crofton, will go from Village Green Mall in Duncan to Crofton, ending at York Avenue near Chaplin.

This route will then return to Village Green Mall at regularly scheduled Route 6 times.

The second route, from Duncan to Chemainus, will go from Village Green Mall and travel via Lakes and Herd Road to the Trans Canada Highway.

It will service Mt. Sicker and Chemainus roads, ending at the usual Pine at Daniel stop in Chemainus.

As a result of the bridge construction, the second route will bypass Crofton in order to reach Chemainus.

There will be no direct transit service between Chemainus and Crofton during the detour, and bus riders going from Crofton to Chemainus will have to travel through Duncan during this time.
