Malahat traffic flow changes

Shifting lanes and temporary lane markers along the Trans Canada Highway between McCurdy Road and south of Aspen Road on Highway 1 are going to be the norm for awhile as safety improvements on the Malahat continue.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure advised on April 3 that as of the following day, “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.”

What it means for drivers is delays of up to 20 minutes and intermittent stoppages to facilitate blasting work from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and during the day outside of key commuter times, from Monday through Thursday.

The speed limit in construction zones is 60 km/h at all times.
