I think that was only at limited times, wasn’t it?

^No it's closed all day, there's hoarding in the southbound lane.

Odd. I drove south along that block what feels like several weeks ago, and no, I didn’t come home with any hoarding on the roof.

Confirming what LJ is saying. Peatt Road is closed to traffic heading towards Highway 1 between Goldstream and Hockley. It is only open for traffic heading towards Westshore Town Centre. At Hockley and Peatt, traffic heading towards the highway is detoured to Hockley (Hockley has two way traffic flowing) then Bryn Myer to the roundabout at the fountain.

I rather like it one way. Maybe this should be a permanent change!

LJ says southbound, you say northbound. I think we need video evidence here. :)

These are very short closures, thought whatever direction they are. Victoria is shutting down an entire direction of travel for 18 months.

The northbound closure at Pandora is permanent as part of the bike route work; all northbound traffic will be required to turn right onto the frontage road. So the volume of traffic impacted by a northbound lane closure is low (limited to the number that would use the frontage road). So unless a driver is trying to directly access Harris Green park or the buildings on the south side of Pandora between Vancouver and Cook, the section of road closed for construction should have no impact on their route.

Any ideas when Townline's project will go to council? Would the 18-month closure be just for excavation of the Townline site and then not be needed for construction? I can't imagine 18 months is enough for the project to go to council, be approved, excavated, and then constructed.

I said the southbound lane was closed, southbound traffic is routed onto the northbound lane.

You should do a drive by, Mike K. You know... investigative reporting...

This might also be relayed to the Wedge project behind the Townline proposal. Townline can be too far behind, though, and I think they can start excavating before formal approvals are handed down.

If I lived nearby I’d be doing daily updates.

This intersection is the view from my living room window. Right now, there's a northbound temporary traffic cone bike lane, markings laid out for the northbound vehicle closure that were always a part of the Vancouver St plans, and southbound traffic is open.

Ok, I’m back from an investigation. The northbound lane was redirected onto Hockley. Southbound traffic was flowing. It looked like there was excavation of the west side sidewalk going on.
