Prospect Lake Road – Roadside Barrier and Amphibian Fencing

Start Date: August 2020
End Date: September 2020
Last Updated: July 2020
Budget: $20,000

Project Description: 

The District will be undertaking the installation of a roadside barrier and amphibian fencing along sections of Prospect Lake Road.

The roadside barrier will be a pilot project where a 70 meter stretch of road fronting Calvert Park will be re-laned to a single travel lane with advance yield points and shielding installed on the pond side of the road. The stretch of road where the traffic barrier is being installed was identified as requiring safety improvements for roadway users and pedestrians. The decision to re-lane the road to single lane adjacent to the barrier was based on balancing environmental concerns, tree preservation, traffic calming, and cost effectiveness.

The amphibian fencing will be installed along sections of Prospect Lake Road near Calvert Park and Goy Park. Amphibian fencing is being installed based on high volumes of amphibian crossings that have been tracked at specific locations.

The planned work is a continuation of the road maintenance construction project completed in summer 2019.

Larchwood Bicycle Lanes & Pedestrian Improvements

Start Date: August 2020
Finish Date: Fall 2020
Last Updated: July 2020
Budget: $500,000

Project Description: The District of Saanich will be installing a new All Ages and Abilities bicycle facility along Larchwood Drive. Work will include sidewalk upgrades and maintenance, planted traffic islands installations, crosswalk upgrades and installations, street light installations, pavement resurfacing, boulevard tree plantings, and vehicle lane and buffered bike lane marking installations.

Transportation and the use of motor vehicles has been identified as a major contributor of GHG emissions in Saanich’s Climate Plan. Our goal is to promote active transportation as a viable alternative to the private motor vehicle by creating a network of active transportation facilities. We aim are to provide a street scape that is attractive and safe for all users of the community.

In order to create a safe cycling environment, street parking will be designated to areas that do not block access or visibility. This will result in a reduction of the amount of street parking that will be available along Larchwood Drive. We suggest parking on the nearest adjacent side street as an alternative.

Please check out the attached conceptual design.  Larchwood Bike & Pedestrian Improvements Conceptual Design July 2020.pdf [PDF - 3 MB]

Project Description: 

 The District of Saanich, in partnership with ICBC, and with the help of a third-party consultant is undertaking a Traffic Operations and Safety Review for Prospect Lake Road from Burnside Rd W to West Saanich Road.  Prospect Lake Rd Review Map.pdf [PDF - 16 MB]

The safety review will be based on The Canadian Guide to In-Service Road Safety Reviews, developed by Transportation Association of Canada. This project is initiated in response to community feedback about the safety on Prospect Lake Road and the need for a review of the roadway. 

The intent of this road safety review is to assess the existing roadway conditions, traffic volumes, collision history, geometrics, human factors, observations and traffic conflicts.  These factors will be assessed and options to reduce collision risks will be provided.  Receiving input from the public will be an important piece of this review and we encourage residents who have an interest in this area to share their local knowledge of the road and to identify areas or characteristics of the road that are of concern.

Feedback can be provided until March 30th by email to engineering@saanich.ca.  Please use maps of the area with centerline kilometer markers as reference while providing input.

RESULTS:

As a result of Traffic Operation and Safety Review [PDF - 30 MB] for Prospect Lake Road a number of items have been identified as suggested improvements.

In addition to the items identified in the Traffic Operations and Safety Review, Saanich is continuing to move forward with plans to complete a number of other projects, including:

  • Centerline rumble strip installation near Munn Rd (end of summer)
  • Road narrowing and yield point at Trevlac Pond near Calvert Park. Trial for road narrowing and yield point installation is planned for this summer.
  • New sidewalk installation from Goward Rd to Prospect Lake Community Hall on Sparton Rd and installation of a traffic signal at the West Saanich Rd / Prospect Lake Rd / Sparton Rd intersection.

West Saanich Rd and Prospect Lake Rd / Sparton Road Intersection - Conceptual Design

Start Date: April 2019
Last Updated: February 2020

Project Description: Saanich is working with a design consultant to complete the conceptual design of a full intersection upgrade at West Saanich Rd and Prospect Lake Rd / Sparton Rd. This will include improvements to traffic flow with safe access in all directions by pedestrians, cyclists and motorists to the Prospect Lake Elementary School, nearby businesses and the Interurban trail.

Project Goals:

  • Improve traffic movements at the intersection
  • Provide safe facilities that promote safe streets and more people walking and riding bikes
  • Extend pedestrian pathway/walkway from Whitehead Park at Goward Rd to the Community Hall to close any gaps
  • Upgrade Watermain Design from the intersection to the Prospect Lake school

Update as at October 15, 2019: 

The project’s design consultant has presented The District with two recommended options for improvement of West Saanich – Prospect Lake/Sparton intersection and a sidewalk from Whitehead Park at Goward Rd to Prospect Lake Community Hall.

The proposed concepts were developed with consideration taken to the existing and 20 year projected traffic volumes, surrounding topography, proximity of local school and businesses locations and accessibility to therein, geotechnical findings, environmental impacts, soil quality assessment, and a tree survey.

Based on these findings, the project design consultant’s recommended two preferable options for the intersection – a roundabout and a signalized intersection. Included in their submission is a sidewalk design which begins at Goward Rd and connects to the Community Hall on Sparton Rd.

Concepts and the technical memorandum

 

Update as at February 13, 2020:

We would like to express our deep appreciation to all who attended the Open House event and to all who provided us with comments and insights on how to improve the  concept designs. Based on the comments received during the public participation phase of the project Saanich Engineering has begun working on finalizing a final concept for West Saainich – Prospect Lake/Sparton intersection and sidewalk from Whitehead Park at Goward Rd to Prospect Lake Community Hall.

The updated concept as well as the summary from the public participation phase will be posted to this webpage in February.

 

Update as at March 11, 2020

After extensive public feedback, the preferred design of a new traffic signal was chosen for the intersection of West Saanich/Prospect Lake/Sparton. The traffic signal design had the added benefits of limiting parking impacts to the surrounding businesses and a safer design for pedestrians and cyclists.

Please review a summary of the public open house in this supplemental technical memo.
