The Province of BC and the City of Langford today announced federal and provincial funding for the construction of an interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway at the intersection of Admirals Road and McKenzie Avenue, as well as funding for an extension of the West Shore Parkway which will connect the Trans-Canada Highway to Highway 14 in Langford.
The Highway 1 Admirals Road/McKenzie Avenue Interchange project will include the construction of a new interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway at the intersection with Admirals Road and McKenzie Avenue.
The Westshore Parkway extension project will involve the construction of a two-lane road, approximately 3.5 kilometres long connecting Highway 1 to Highway 14. Upgrades will include the integration of a middle turning lane where required, new bike lanes on both sides of the roadway, sidewalks in the residential areas, the installation of sewer and stormwater infrastructure, as well as streetlights, transit stops and boulevard medians.
Collectively, these upgrades and enhancements will help improve traffic flow between two of the fastest growing communities in British Columbia, while reducing collision rates and improving pedestrian/cyclist safety throughout the Capital Regional District.
