On Thursday October 26 in the Latoria area of Colwood, drivers should anticipate delays when traveling along Latoria Boulevard, Sparrowhawk Avenue and the surrounding Royal Bay neighbourhood.

Consider an alternate route to avoid delays, says the City of Colwood.

Underground work:

Underground construction will take place across Latoria Boulevard in preparation for the installation of crosswalk flashers to enhance the safety of a pedestrian crossing. Contractor for the work is Northridge Excavating Ltd.

Single-lane traffic:

Lane closures in both directions are anticipated. Single-lane alternating traffic will be in effect. Delays are expected. Use of an alternate route is recommended.

Traffic control personnel will be onsite to direct traffic. Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are asked to follow their directions, obey traffic signs, reduce speed, and use caution.
