Traffic control personnel keep an eye on morning commuters moving past construction work on the corner of Bay Street at Skinner Street. The work is expected to last until mid-November.

Vic West driving headaches ahead

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

  • Sep. 12, 2013 2:00 p.m.

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.
