Construction work brings delays to Pat Bay Highway

Work will mainly take place at night on project that should last until fall

  • Jul. 4, 2016 8:00 p.m.

Motorists are being advised of construction starting this week on the Pat Bay Highway between Sayward Road and Haliburton Road and are advised to expect delays.

The work is expected to be complete in the early fall and will include the repaving of approximately three kilometres, as well as safety improvements at Cordova Bay Road that, once complete, will allow only right-in, right-out from this road. The timing of the traffic signals at both the Sayward and Haliburton intersections will be adjusted as needed to accommodate the expected traffic pattern changes.

The majority of work will occur at night when traffic volumes are low. Work will not occur over holiday weekends and staff will be monitoring traffic throughout the duration of the project to ensure any delays related to construction are minimal. The work schedule may also change due to weather and other conditions.

Motorists are advised to allow for extra time and are reminded to obey traffic control personnel and construction speed limits, and watch for workers and highway message boards. For up-to-date traffic advisories, please check: www.drivebc.ca/.
