Highway 14 improvements near Sooke to continue through 2021

Share

Road work improvements to Highway 14 near Sooke will be continuing through 2021, as the province works towards $85.7 million in upgrades.

Resurfacing of 11 kilometres of Highway 14 between Otter Point Road and Woodhaven Road is currently underway, with paved shoulders being added.

The Highway is also being realigned and widened to four lanes between Glinz Lake Road to Connie Road.

Work on these areas is expected to be completed in the summer of 2022.

A median barrier will be installed along the highway between Manzer Road and the Neil Creek Bridge, to the east of Connie Road.

Other improvements include:

  • a new public transit park and ride at the intersection of Highway 14 and Gillespie Road
  • a pedestrian underpass east of the new intersection at Glinz Lake Road and Polymede Place
  • a new road between Manzer Road and Gillespie Road and between Connie Road and Gillespie Road for low-speed traffic connections between local sideroads

The federal government is contributing $30.2 million for the project while the province is funding the remaining balance of $55.5 million
