The $9.1-million Brownsey Boulevard roundabout and town centre project are going according to plan, say Transportation Ministry officials.
This week, work on the roundabout and the Sooke Town Centre improvements consist of pouring the inner concrete curb at the roundabout, the completion of pouring the concrete sidewalk curbs and driveway access points on Brownsey Boulevard and continuing electrical installation to accommodate overhead lighting.
Adjacent to the roundabout, shoulder widening and boulevard construction is ongoing in preparation for the new sidewalks and concrete curbs and gutters.
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.
