Concrete and pavement will be the focus of the Brownsey Boulevard roundabout and town centre project this week.

The work will consist of pouring concrete for the sidewalk and driveways on Brownsey Boulevard and continuing brick work on the sidewalks and paving of Brownsey.

On Sooke Road, paving will get underway, weather permitting, from west of Brownsey to Church Road.

“The ministry’s primary concern is for the safety of the travelling public and construction workers. Lane shifts and traffic patterns are changing daily,” said Sonia Lowe, a public affairs officer with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Travellers are reminded to be aware of workers, slow down for their safety and follow the directions of traffic control personnel.

The District of Sooke is contributing $3.1 million for the roundabout, which fuses Sooke Road, Brownsey Boulevard and Evergreen Centre into one loop.

The province takes care of the rest with an additional $6 million for a complete revamp of Sooke Road between Otter Point and Church roads. Those improvements include new sidewalks, crosswalks, lighting, curbs, bike lane and bus shelters.

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