Vic West driving headaches ahead

Ongoing intersection upgrades on west side of Bay Street Bridge scheduled to last until mid-November

Ongoing roadworks near the west side of the Bay Street Bridge will constrain traffic in Vic West for the next three months.

Sidewalk, crosswalk and lighting upgrades at Bay Street, where Tyee and Skinner roads intersect, mean drivers in a hurry should consider using the Johnson Street or Tillicum Road bridges.

Lane obstructions are expected through construction from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., said City of Victoria spokesperson Katie Hamilton.

Drivers southbound along Craigflower and Skinner roads will need to use a detour along Catherine Street during construction. Work at the intersection will be completed in November.
