Paving begins on roundabout

The project remains on schedule and work is expected to be finished this fall

Asphalt work is expected to begin this week on the Brownsey Boulevard roundabout and town centre project.

Weather depending, the first layer of asphalt will be placed on Brownsey and the south half of the roundabout area.

Last week, work on the roundabout at the Sooke Town Centre consisted of completing the inner concrete insert on the south half of the roundabout, with work on the north half to start this week.

Concrete sidewalk curbs and driveway access points on Brownsey Boulevard have been completed, and brick sidewalks will now be installed.

Adjacent to the roundabout, shoulder widening and boulevard construction continue west to Otter Point Rd in preparation for the new sidewalks and concrete curbs and gutters.  Storm main replacement from Anna Marie east past Church Road is wrapping up this week as well.

The project remains on schedule and work is expected to be finished this fall.
