The McKenzie Interchange Project is a grade-separated interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway at the intersection with Admirals Road and McKenzie Avenue in Saanich. The intersection is the number one bottleneck in the province outside of the Lower Mainland.

The project will improve traffic flow of passenger, transit and goods movement vehicles and reduce collisions and congestion-related impacts to the economy, environment and public health. Safety of pedestrians and cyclists will also be enhanced as part of the project.

It is anticipated that the project would result in overall travel time savings significantly reducing the commuting time between the Western communities, downtown Victoria and the University of Victoria, for passenger vehicles and transit.
