(McKenzie Interchange/Ministry of Transportation)

The B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure are advising motorist in Greater Victoria of a planned overnight highway closure this weekend.

The Trans Canada Highway southbound and northbound between Tillicum Road and the McKenzie Interchange (Admirals/McKenzie Avenue) will be closed overnight this Friday, October 2, from 11 p.m. until the following morning at 5 a.m.

The closure will be in place to allow crews to install an overhead guide sign.

Traffic will be directed with the use of detour signs to lead vehicles through an alternate route using Admirals Road, Gorge Road West and Tillicum Road.

Southbound traffic from the highway turning onto McKenzie Ave using the loop ramp will not be affected by the closure.

Drivers are asked to obey construction-zone speed limits and the direction of traffic control personnel.
