    Transportation Committee Requests Feedback until November 15, 2017

    The Cordova Bay Association for Community Affairs, Transportation Committee is requesting your feedback/input on proposed traffic calming measures along Cordova Bay Road. The Transportation Committee is a group of 9 Cordova Bay residents who are very concerned about the current and likely to be increased traffic in Cordova Bay.  Currently, we have decided to  focus on Cordova Bay Road as noted in the overview, as this is likely the area that will be most impacted by the increased traffic of the new developments.

    As you will note on the overview we have numbered areas on the map that the committee has identified as safety or problem areas.  As a resident of Cordova Bay we would greatly appreciate your input/feedback.

    The CB+55 have agreed to allow us to display this overview in the CB+55 space at Cordova Bay Elementary school. They will not be providing any direction in regard to this matter and we ask that your input/comments/suggestions be directed to the CBA Transportation Committee at trafficcba@gmail.com . The overview will be on display Monday through Friday 9-3.30 until November 15, with one evening opportunity for viewing Thursday, November 9 from 7-9 p.m. also in the CB+55 space.  As well, the overview is provide here in four sections: One, Two, Three and Four.

    Please help us correlate the results in a meaningful way when responding, by putting the area(s) that you are responding to in the subject line i.e. #2 Cordova Bay School or if your comments are general than please put “general comment” in the subject line of your email.  Also please provide your address for our information.

    We will be seeking feedback until November 15, 2017 and once we have correlated the results we will share the themes from the feedback with the CBA membership, CBA Board of Directors, Saanich, BC Transit and others as deemed necessary.

    We understand that we cannot stop traffic as we all know this is a beautiful area that people are drawn too.  Our intent is to provide Saanich Engineering feedback and information from our community member so they can manage traffic to ensure safety for all using our roads, parks and beaches.

    Thank you in advance for supporting the work of the CBA Transportation Committee.

    Sincerely,

    Lynda Vallee, Traffic Co-Chair                                   Dave Mitton, Traffic Co-Chair

    Construction work brings delays to Pat Bay Highway

    Motorists are being advised of construction starting this week on the Pat Bay Highway between Sayward Road and Haliburton Road and are advised to expect delays.

    The work is expected to be complete in the early fall and will include the repaving of approximately three kilometres, as well as safety improvements at Cordova Bay Road that, once complete, will allow only right-in, right-out from this road. The timing of the traffic signals at both the Sayward and Haliburton intersections will be adjusted as needed to accommodate the expected traffic pattern changes.

    The majority of work will occur at night when traffic volumes are low. Work will not occur over holiday weekends and staff will be monitoring traffic throughout the duration of the project to ensure any delays related to construction are minimal. The work schedule may also change due to weather and other conditions.

    Motorists are advised to allow for extra time and are reminded to obey traffic control personnel and construction speed limits, and watch for workers and highway message boards. For up-to-date traffic advisories, please check: www.drivebc.ca/.
