Highway 14 overhead sign and corridor study in the works

Work will begin in late May 2016, and is expected to be finished during the summer.

  • May. 18, 2016 3:00 p.m.

A new digital sign will provide drivers travelling west on Highway 14 with up-to-date information on road conditions, lane

closures and commuting delays, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone announced today.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will also begin a study to identify future priorities for Highway 14 improvements.

"The Highway 14 corridor is a critical link on southern Vancouver Island that serves a wide variety of people including commuters,

commercial drivers, tourists and cyclists," said Stone. "In response to discussions with local community leaders, we will be looking at ways to

improve this route and the new overhead sign is an important first step."

The overhead changeable message sign will be located near Awsworth Road, approximately 500 metres west of the future connection to the new

West Shore Parkway extension on Highway 14, and will face drivers heading westbound, toward Sooke.

Work will begin in late May 2016, and is expected to be finished during the summer.
