Millstream Interchange Dual Left Turn Lane

23 April 2018

The City of Langford started construction of  the Millstream Interchange Dual Left Turn Lane project the week of January 29, 2018 with anticipated completion April 30th, 2018.

The Millstream overpass does not currently have designated bikelanes and is missing sidewalk on the east side of the overpass. In addition, the current configuration is just one left turn lane travelling south across the bridge deck to turn left or south towards the City of Victoria. Traffic congestion has increased in the area which has triggered the City to construct the second left turn lane to provide increased capacity for motorists travelling southbound onto the Trans Canada Highway.

When the Millstream overpass was originally built it anticipated an additional lane on the bridge. That lane exists right now behind concrete barriers. The improvements include:

  • Construction of 2.0m wide bikelanes in both directions linking to the existing bikelanes on Millstream Road and Veterans Memorial Parkway;
  • Completion of the missing sections of sidewalk on the east side of the bridge (in the northbound traffic direction);
  • Signal improvements including pedestrian crossing capabilities on the northbound off-ramp and a signalized left turn lane for vehicles on the bridge deck travelling north to Nanaimo;
  • Pedestrian and/or cyclists crossing location northbound to cross over the southbound on-ramp (travelling north on Veterans Memorial Parkway to southbound TCH);
  • Creation of the second left turn lane; and
  • Maintaining two through lanes south on the overpass toward Veterans Memorial Parkway and a dedicated right turn lane southbound to Peatt Road.

Night work will be permitted to best manage construction related traffic and a detailed traffic management plan will be adhered to.  Not all work can be done at night however so we ask motorists to follow construction signage on site. Work is not permitted from noon on the Friday of a long weekend to the Tuesday following a long weekend that has a statutory holiday on a Monday.

Windley Contracting will be working Mondays to Fridays 4am to 2pm with some lane closures. If possible some work will be done overnight, but work that requires the use of other suppliers such as gravel or paving companies is more difficult to undertake at night.

Construction traffic signage will be erected prior to the work beginning.
