We know that transportation and getting around Sooke safely is the “single biggest issue” for residents. We are listening and responding by moving forward with the implementation of the Transportation Master Plan as quickly as resources allow.

Overall, we hope the inconvenience will be relatively short-lived. In the meantime, we kindly ask residents to pack their patience or make alternative plans, if possible. Consider carpooling or using Transit if these are viable options for your household.

After progress is made on the Church/Throup Roundabout, we’ll proceed with the Charters Road Connector with works including significant structural repairs and the addition of sidewalks and bike lanes.

The District’s efforts through longer-term planning are to manage both vehicle and pedestrian traffic off of Highway 14, on our local roads, through a combination of infrastructure improvements and economic development.
