McKenzie interchange moving ahead

Public information session set for Feb. 24 at St. Joseph the Worker Parish Hall

  • Feb. 11, 2016 7:00 p.m.

The provincial government is moving to the next phase of public consultation for the Admirals-McKenzie interchange.

A report is publicly available online at engage.gov.bc.ca/mckenzieinterchange, with more than 1,100 comments and submissions from the public, First Nations, local governments and key stakeholders.

An upcoming public information session is scheduled for Feb. 24, from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Joseph the Worker Parish Hall, 753 Burnside Rd. West.

“We have received valuable input from the community and continue to talk to stakeholders and the public as we take the next steps in bringing this important infrastructure project to commuters, commercial drivers, transit users, cyclists and pedestrians,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone.

Staff from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and other members of the project team will be available to answer questions and provide details on this next phase of the project.

Atop resident worries are traffic flow at the interchange, the residual effect on the neighbouring McKenzie/Burnside intersection, Cuthbert Holmes Park, consideration of transit, cycling and pedestrians, and support for options where the highway passes underneath Admirals-McKenzie.

Comments or questions can be called into the project team by 250-387-8700, or by email to mckenzieinterchange@gov.bc.ca.
