No more closures! Highway improvements at Roberts Creek 'substantially completed'

No more lane closures are planned at Joe/Orange Road intersection

Lane additions and other work on Highway 101 in Roberts Creek are substantially complete with final touches expected to be wrapped by mid-December.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said in a Nov. 28 email to Coast Reporter the construction had been completed, “and there are no more planned lane closures.”

A ministry spokesperson said the construction was “substantially completed” last week.

What remains of the project is “trimming and project clean-up” over the next couple of weeks, which might cause “minor disruptions for drivers,” said the ministry email.

Also, transit shelters at Joe and Orange Road are expected to be installed by BC Transit in mid-December.

Protected left-turn lanes eastbound and westbound were installed and the adjustments were made to the “overall geometry” of the intersection, “to further enhance safety,” said the ministry. 

The upgrades were part of the Highway 101 corridor study released in fall 2020 that recommends more than $20 million in improvements between the Langdale ferry terminal and the southern end of Redrooffs Road.
