Beginning this weekend, motorists heading northbound on Highway 1 will start to detour onto the newly constructed ramps for the future McKenzie interchange.

The new lanes will be in place until construction of the overpass crossing which is expected to be completed by summer 2019.

In a statement released by Ministry of Transportation, there will be no changes to the signal timing operations and the existing traffic speeds will remain.

“The ministry asks drivers to follow signs, watch for workers, and keep moving through the construction site while obeying the construction speed limit of 60 km/h.”

The southbound traffic is expected to be detoured on a new alignment later this summer as construction progresses.

These lane shifts will allow crews to excavate the existing highway down and construct the overpass across the highway.
