Throup/Church Intersection to Re-open with Single Lane Alternating Traffic on Throup September 5-8, 2023

Friday, September 1, 2023 – Significant works on the Church/Throup Roundabout Project are continuing as the District makes progress on this critical corridor project and responds to the needs of our growing community.

Best efforts will be made to balance construction requirements and lessen the impact on commuters; however, delays are expected.

Next week, Church Road will be open and Throup Road will re-open to single-lane alternating traffic. While this is good news and should help some of the backup congestion seen on Highway 14 last week, we are encouraging commuters to avoid the area, if possible. It is currently anticipated that single-lane alternating traffic will remain in place on Throup Road from Tuesday, September 5th until Friday, September 8th, 7am to 7pm.

Earlier today, the District announced the Active Routes to Schools Campaign which may offer a creative solution for managing area traffic congestion.

Those travelling to/from Poirier and Journey Schools are strongly encouraged to make use of alternative meeting spots/locations for their school commute, such as:

  • Municipal Hall at 2205 Otter Point Road;
  • Sooke Library at 6671 Wadams Way; or
  • SEAPARC Parking Lot at 2168 Phillips Road.

Making use of such locations offers a transportation alternative with many benefits including helping school-aged children meet the recommendation to accumulate at least 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity, which is associated with improved physical and mental health, and lessening congestion around schools.

While road works are disruptive, please be patient and kind as team members and project crews work hard for the benefit of Sooke.
