48-hour closure planned for Otter Point Road

48-hour closure planned for Otter Point Road

August 21, 2020 at 1:29 pm  BC, News, Politics

Drivers are advised that a section of Otter Point Road between Sarah Place and Butler Road will be closed from 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 1, to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 2, as part of work to upgrade the road.

This 48-hour closure is required to allow for the installation of a culvert crossing 400 metres east of Butler Road North at Poirier Lake.

The road will be barricaded with single-lane access open for emergency vehicles, BC Transit and residents. Traffic-control personnel located at Butler Road North and Sarah Drive will speak to the drivers of each vehicle to confirm the address of their destination and allow residents to pass. Non-residents will be detoured. Drivers wanting to access Butler Road North must use Kemp Lake Road. For safety reasons, there will be no pedestrian or bicycle access.

Traffic will re-open to two-way operation on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 a.m.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure thanks motorists and residents for their patience during the closure. Drivers are asked to use caution and follow the directions of traffic control personnel. For the most up-to-date highway travel information, visit: www.drivebc.ca

The culvert installation is part of work to upgrade two kilometres of Otter Point Road between the Sooke municipal boundary and Kemp Lake Road. The work includes widening and paving the existing shoulders and improving the road’s alignment, making the road safer for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.
