(Highway 14)

Commuters should expect delays along Highway 14 this week, as the final phase of the Connie Road to Glinz Lake Road project concludes in Sooke.

Once completed, the changes are expected to improve safety and support the expected population increases on southern Vancouver Island.

Starting tomorrow, July 19th, crews will be shifting traffic to two newly constructed lanes between Connie Road and Glinz Lake Road following the morning rush hour.

Eastbound and westbound traffic will be directed to the new lanes, while workers place delineators and complete line painting. 

This work is expected to be complete by the end of the day.

Drivers accessing Gillespie Road will be directed to the new Gillespie connector, which passes under the newly constructed bridge. 

Tuesday’s traffic change marks the final phase of the Connie Road to Glinz Lake Road project, a 2.3-kilometre route that will feature four lanes. 

Drivers are reminded to drive for the conditions and to observe traffic personnel and signage.

Road work improvements to Highway 14 near Sooke will cost the province $85.7 million. The overall project is expected to be completed in the coming weeks.
