Preparations to Begin for Pilot Road Changes in Beacon Hill Park

From August to the end of October, the City of Victoria will be piloting specific road closures and changes in traffic direction in Beacon Hill Park to reduce traffic and make the park more pedestrian and bicycle friendly.

In preparation for the pilot road changes, starting July 9, City crews will begin work to convert some of the park's roads to temporary multi-use trails and change the direction of traffic flow in the park. The work will consist of installing temporary bollards and signs, as well as improving curbing for the pilot routes.

During preparations, pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained, but motorists may experience minor delays. The pilot road changes will be made incrementally , and are expected to be completed by the end of the month.

During the pilot, the community will have the opportunity to learn more and provide feedback on the changes at an information booth in the park on select weekends in August; at the Beacon Hill Park Maintenance Yard located at the end of Nursery Road, or here on the City's website.
