I was stuck today on Wallace Drive for a solid 10 minutes, maybe longer, as crews were working on the sewage pipes to Hartland. Some folks were not happy over the wait.

What's with the terrible condition the Fort/Richmond area roads are being left in during whatever it is they're doing around there? The potholes and surface irregularities are terrible, bordering on dangerous.

I'm looking forward to this - hopefully the merge jam that blocks the Leigh Rd. exit will be lessened or eliminated.  And maybe fewer folks will drive along the shoulder in that scenario.  It's a bit dicey when the exit lane finally opens up and you have a line of cars scooting along the shoulder to contend with.  <_<

McKenzie Avenue is being repaved between Saanich and Quadra Street now that the Otto development is wrapping up (just mostly paving and landscaping left to be done). That stretch of road has been a mess of potholes, gravel, and various patches for well over a year now, presumably due to blasting and other construction work. I'll be happy to see a smooth surface again!

Also, the scramble crosswalk at Government/Wharf/Humboldt has been open for at least a couple days now. There are no right turns on red from any direction, and the only left turns permitted are a left off of Government onto Wharf. The intersection runs in three phases:
1) Pedestrian scramble in all directions
2) Green lights for right off Wharf onto Government, left off Government onto Wharf, and straight north on Government
3) Green lights for Wharf -> Humboldt and Humboldt ->Wharf. I assume this will be a green light for cyclists as well, once the bike lanes are open.

It actually seems to move quite efficiently without pedestrians and cars moving at the same time, as you don't have that one car slowly inching out to take a turn as pedestrians are crossing, holding up everyone behind them. 

The brickwork and street furniture is really nice. There's little bumps on the ground for the blind at both the street crossing and bike lane crossing.

They did a bunch of work further east past Braefoot and just finished repaving all that. Nice and slick now.

 

The upgrade on Wilkinson from Greenlea to Travino lane is almost done as well. Maybe a couple more weeks... seems so slow.

 

PS. Travino down to a handful of units left for sale. That's one mega project wrapping up sales.

Sooke Road/Old Island is closed between Wale and Kelly on the Westshore following an MVI.

 

Lots of commuters are affected. If you're commuting by bus from out that way check with BC Transit for detour information.
