        Cowichan/Duncan & Central Vancouver Island

    •  BC TRANSIT bus routes. Starting November 18 until further notice. Reduced schedules for routes 44 (Victoria/Duncan), 66 (Duncan Commuter), and 99 (Shawnigan Lake Commuter) to one bus travelling in each direction, until further notice.

      Port Renfrew

      • June 3 & June 4. Highway 14 Parkinson Hill repair project. The section of Hwy 14 at Parkinson Hill (six kilometres east of Port Renfrew) will be closed from 8:30 am on Thursday June 3 through 5:30 am on Friday June 4. The 21-hour closure is for crews to remove a temporary bridge that was installed in April to allow for deep road-based repairs over the width of the existing highway. The Parkinson Hill slope repair project is one schedule to be completed by July 2021. Once completed, two-way traffic on Highway 14 will be restored, making travelling the road to Port Renfrew safer and more efficient.
