Expect some delays on the Malahat today and tomorrow

Cowichan commuters, your Victoria commute won't be smooth sailing tomorrow.

Starting March 4, motorists are advised to expect traffic delays on the Malahat stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway while the Ministry of Transportation performs rock scaling work five kilometres south of Shawnigan Lake Road.

According to a Ministry of Transportation media release, motorists may expect intermittent delays of up to 20 minutes on Tuesday and Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

"This is routine work that includes bringing down rock and debris in a controlled way to ensure the safety of the travelling public," ministry spokesperson Robert Adam states.

"Motorists are advised to check drivebc.ca before they leave home, drive with caution, watch for workers and obey traffic personnel. The ministry apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks the public for their patience."
