Welcome to the McKenzie Interchange Project engagement website.

The purpose of this website is to provide you with information about the McKenzie Interchange Project and allow you an opportunity to provide input and share your thoughts throughout the project.

The Province of B.C. and the Government of Canada are investing $85 million in the development and construction of the McKenzie Interchange Project, a new interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway at the Intersection with Admirals Road and McKenzie Avenue in Saanich. The intersection is the number one bottleneck on Vancouver Island. The project will help improve traffic flow in the Capital Regional District, while reducing collisions and improving pedestrian and cyclist safety.

The final design announced in spring 2016 reflects input from the public and many stakeholders, including the District of Saanich and other local governments, community associations, cycling groups, First Nations, emergency service providers, park stewards, nearby schools and BC Transit. Construction began on September 29, 2016.
