Construction on the Keating Cross Road flyover overpass is finally getting underway and the province is warning motorists of changes to traffic patterns.

Drivers are being advised changes will be in effect on the Pat Bay Highway near Keating Cross Road starting June 1 as crews prepare for construction.

Access to Martindale Road from Highway 17 will permanently close as of June 8, with access available from Gliddon Road.

The southbound on-ramp from Keating Cross Road to Highway 17 will also be closed from June 3. That closure will last for the duration of the project.

Motorists will be able to access the highway via a detour from Central Saanich Road to Tanner Road and truck traffic will be detoured to Central Saanich Road along the existing truck route.

Nightly lane closures in each direction along the Pat Bay Highway, between Tanner and Island View roads, will begin on June 1. This will result in single-lane traffic from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. until the summer of 2024.

Construction is expected to start in the coming weeks. For up-to-date information on the project, go to
