Traffic delay coming down the pipe for Dallas Road

Pipe installation begins next week at Ogden Point and Clover Point

Traffic disruptions are expected along Dallas Road starting next week as new pipe is laid as part of the Wastewater Treatment Project.

The installation of the pipe along Dallas Road from Clover Point to Ogden Point is anticipated to begin Jan. 7.

Work will start at each end of the pipe and will be completed in sections, starting with the stretch from Niagara Street to Dock Street (Section 1) and Clover Point to Cook Street (Section 7).

There will be single lane alternating traffic in the work zones of both sections during work hours, which are Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The section between Niagara and Dock Streets will have single lane alternating traffic in the work zone overnight as required.

A portion of Dallas Road between Niagara and Dock streets will be temporarily closed one or two days a week during work hours as the pipe is moved into the trench. Detours will be implemented.

There will be some parking impacts on Dallas Road and vehicle access to residents and businesses may be temporarily restricted but residents will be notified in advance.

Bus stops may be temporarily impacted on Dallas Road between Niagara and Montreal streets. BC Transit will post notifications at the stop.

The Wastewater Treatment Project includes the construction of a pipe which will transport wastewater from the Clover Point Pump Station to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant for tertiary treatment. This pipe, called the Clover Forcemain, will run along Dallas Road from Clover Point to Ogden Point, where it will connect to the Victoria cross-harbour undersea pipe. Construction began in October 2018 and is anticipated to take approximately two years to complete.

The Wastewater Treatment Project will provide tertiary treatment for wastewater from the core area municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich, Oak Bay, View Royal, Langford and Colwood, and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations by the end of 2020.
