Jocularity aside, I went through the intersection this morning around 10:45 heading over to the #17 and then back an hour or so later and traffic was NOT unusually backed up.  One light change wait heading out, clear sailing on McKenzie and the merge to #1 on the way back.

And while I was waiting for the left turn light a truck with one of the precast beams went through, so I was entertained at least.

In case anyone missed it, MoTI posted a time-lapse of the bridge beam installation the other day.

Excellent. So this thing will be open to traffic September-ish, right? With completion of the whole project slated for end-of-year?

Looks like they are getting ready to do the bridge deck concrete pour here any day now, with the big yellow deck pour machine now on site. What would that put us at...having Admirals/McKenzie traffic hopefully using the bridge by the end of September, which gives a couple of months to finish the excavation and send TCH traffic under the bridge by the end of the year/early 2020?

I believe the plan is November so we could have a functional (albeit not 100% finished) interchange this fall.

A spot-on response to a recent Saanich counsellor's complaint about this project.

..Casey Edge, VRBA’s [Victoria Residential Builders Association] executive director, does not buy Brownoff’s critique, contending that Saanich can only blame itself. “The reason for the traffic and need for interchanges is their [council’s] decades-long voting record [regarding] lack of housing density in their core municipality,” said Edge. “If you want LRT as some councillors claim, then provide a reason to build it. The Uptown project and Shelbourne [Valley Action Plan] recently passed are insufficient to make up for years of anti-development voting.” Edge acknowledged that Saanich does not bear sole responsibility, but nonetheless insists that Saanich should have done more to fight urban sprawl. Accordingly, he said it is not appropriate for individual councillors including Brownoff to complain...

This is really coming together. The thought that this interchange is only three months away from opening to traffic has a lot of people excited, for sure.
