Consultant selected for Wilkinson Road work

Engineering firm to help guide process of upgrading Saanich roadway

A $295,000 contract was awarded this week to Delcan Corporation for consulting services for proposed upgrades to Wilkinson Road.

The planned $3.5-million upgrade will see the installations of bike lanes from Mann Avenue to Lindsay Street, as well as extensions and improvements of sidewalks along Wilkinson. A 75-year-old pedestrian bridge near Lindsay Street will also be widened. The project also includes plans for a rain garden that will treat stormwater before it enters the nearby Colquitz River. As well, the bike lanes will connect with Saanich’s Centennial Trail.

Delcan Corporation will help Saanich with the planning and detailed design of the upgrades, and will help in awarding the construction contract. Saanich received $1.75 million in federal gas tax funding in March for the project.
