Hwy 1 closed
(December 2016/BC Government)

As the McKenzie Interchange project continues to progress, drivers are advised to be alert to lane changes over the coming week.

From Saturday, March 24th, through Friday, March 30th, crews will be connecting and testing a main waterline, resulting in temporary shifts in the travelling lanes for Highway 1.

Similar to a shift that occurred in February, southbound traffic will have a bend on both sides of the McKenzie/Admirals intersection, while northbound traffic will have a small diversion on the northern side of the intersection.

The realignments are designed for motorists to use safely at 50km/h. Drivers are reminded to stay vigilant while passing through the construction zone, watch for workers, obey the signs, and follow the construction speed limit of 50km/h.
