(Section of Hwy 4 at Kennedy Hill/BC Transportation and Infrastructure - Facebook)

The Highway 4 construction project, which is making improvements to the only highway in and out of

 Tofino and Ucluelet will continue next week, with three consecutive overnight closures. 

From 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., Wednesday, August 3rd to Friday, August 5th, crews will place cantilever girders and complete deck panel placement as the project nears completion. 

The section of Highway 4 will be closed to vehicle traffic in both directions, with no release of queued traffic. However, accommodation for passage of emergency vehicles will be in place.

Travellers are asked to plan ahead and follow construction signs and directions from traffic control personnel while in the area. 

The project is expected to be completed by the end of summer with finishing touches continuing throughout the fall.

The project was originally slated for completion in summer 2020 at a cost of $38.1 million. The cost of the massive road improvements has since grown to $53.9 million.
