A damaged section of Lochside Trail is set to begin undergoing repairs, following sloughing after a winter storm in 2020 . 

The District of Saanich, in partnership with the CRD, will be undertaking repairs on the Lochside Trail slope between Quadra Street and McKenzie Avenue.

Although emergency work was completed in 2020 and 2021 to prevent further impacts to the slope, complete restoration will occur during this announced project. 

The project will include excavation of the sloughed trail portion, stabilizing the creek bed, rebuilding the slope, and new pavement in the affected area.

Construction will take place between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, including a full trail closure with alternative detours provided. 

The pedestrian detour will be along Quadra Street and McKenzie Avenue, with the cyclists detour directed through Reynolds Road and Borden Street. 

The two northbound lanes on Quadra Street will be reduced to one lane to accommodate the cyclist detour for the duration of the project.

In-stream repairs are scheduled to start mid-August up until mid-September, due to the environmental sensitivity of the Creek area. 

The surface works could continue into October with updates to be posted on the District of Saanich website.
