 Short section of Quadra Street closed for 4 weeks beginning July 12, 2021

Saanich, BC – The District of Saanich is undertaking road and storm drain improvements on Quadra Street. This drainage work is scheduled to start on July 12 and continue for approximately four weeks. Due to the size and location of the drainage pipe being replaced, Quadra Street will be completely closed to through traffic, pedestrians and cyclists between Greenridge Crescent and Reynolds Road for the entirety of the installation.

The road works, including paving and sidewalk improvements on Quadra Street between Rock Street and Mckenzie Avenue has started and will continue over the next 2 months.

Why are we doing this?

Quadra Street has been identified for re-paving due to the poor condition of its asphalt surface. The storm drain culvert is old, showing signs of wear and has reached the end of its useful life. By replacing the drain now we avoid excavating a newly repaved road.
