Road Work on Douglas Street Saturday and Sunday

As part of the ongoing work to introduce priority bus lanes on Douglas Street north of Hillside, City of Victoria road crews are laying the electrical groundwork for traffic signals through Douglas Street at Hillside Avenue Saturday and Sunday.

The work is expected to start at 6 a.m. and continue until approximately 3 p.m. each day. During the construction, there will be lane obstructions and temporary lane closures throughout the day. During the temporary lane closures, northbound traffic will be redirected to Blanshard Street.

The construction zones will be clearly marked with signs and crews will minimize inconveniences to the travelling public and aim to keep traffic flowing as smoothly as possible. Drivers and cyclists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible.
