The construction will take place on Monday – Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., andoccasionally on Saturdays during the same hours.

Traffic flaggers will be on site to direct single lane alternating traffic during these hours.

Lane closures will allow crews to work on installing pipes for the Residual Solids Conveyance Line to convey the residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant to the Residuals Treatment Facility for treatment.

To facilitate this process, three small pump stations are being built in the road right-of-way at Interurban and Courtland Ave near Camosun College, next to the Interurban Rail Trail near West Saanich Road and Observatory Road, and on Hartland Landfill property on Willis Point Road.

All components of the Wastewater Treatment Project are currently under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

The entire project is being funded by the CRD and the federal and provincial governments at a cost of $775 million.
