Commuter delays continue at McKenzie interchange construction site
No Love on Valentines Day for many local commuters.
Reduced speed limits of 50km/hr and lane changes on the Trans-Canada Highway through the construction zone for the new McKenzie interchange, created chaos during the drive Tuesday afternoon and Wedesday morning.
People took to social media to vent their frustration on the latest gridlock, many searching for a alternate route. This week's work involves the installation of a new water main.
The traffic pattern change on Highway 1 at McKenzie is expected to last the week. But keep a lid on the road rage; the entire interchange project isn't scheduled for completion for more than a year.
Bus lane construction on Douglas Street is fueling the congestion.
