Kind of expensive when it would need an elevator.  Also impractical when Saanich is considering redoing Blanshard as 2 way (widening) with a redevelopment of the Save On section to reroute the "highway" off of Vernon.

 

Whoa. Say again?

I believe 3 each way by stealing from the Hansbraun lands.  The big win would be all the land gained that could be developed.  That useless island between Saanich Road and Cloverdale, and the road itself.

So they never listened to the thousands who requested a pedestrian overpass which would have been the more logical sensible and safe route for crossing that freeway

Maybe you could start a Go Fund Me campaign to raise the 7 figures this would cost, all to shave a couple seconds off a car trip.  

 

The improvement is paid for by Morguard and from my understanding, Saanich was essentially not involved.  Just Morguard and MoTI.

Because you've already posted an identical rebuttal elsewhere.

 

A topic might be approach to two posts, but we don't need to carry on a duplicate discussion.

Pictured: work crews are realigning the east end of the 700-block of Cormorant Street in downtown Victoria in preparation for two-way traffic. This fall the one-way street will serve as a two-way thoroughfare between Douglas and Blanshard streets.

 

Work underway to reconfigure one-way Cormorant Street for two-way traffic

They're about to repave the intersection at Richmond/Lansdowne. This could be the last step of the bike lane project in the area - it otherwise appears to be done. New bus shelters were put in just West of Richmond by the school a few weeks ago.

Total lost opportunity if they don't replace the 4-way stop with a roundabout.
