That whole highway needs major work. The slopes give way all the time in the area above and further east the roadbed is shifting and creating dangerous driving conditions.

Witnesses are saying the accident was a rear-end collision, with the vehicle in the rear appearing quite smashed up.

That’s odd. The design on the Min of Trans website shows about 1.2km of highway as part of the project.

Realignment of Highway 14 to Sooke is underway, with piles of freshly cut logs lining the winding road and heavy machinery ripping into rock faces to lay the groundwork for a “much safer” 1.5-kilometre, four-lane stretch.

 

In the middle of all the construction between Connie and Glinz Lake Roads lies the historic 17 Mile House, named for its distance to Victoria City Hall and known since its inception in 1894 as a stage coach stop, hotel for sportsmen and railway workers and — to this day — its classic pub.

The highway has closed at Forebay Road just east of Jordan River due to a sinkhole.
