What We Heard: Planning for Traffic Impacts
In June/July 2022, we asked stakeholders, community groups and service providers for input on traffic management planning during the Comox Valley Sewer Conveyance Project. The project will provide a critical update to sewer infrastructure that will remove an urgent environmental risk – but we recognize it will also be highly disruptive along an already-busy traffic corridor and are committed to engaging with the community to reduce impacts where possible.
The feedback provided has helped the project team better understand how the area along Comox Road, Comox Hill and routes in/through downtown Comox are currently used, what management measures would be most helpful and what the biggest concerns are about disruption. Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide input – the feedback will inform the traffic management strategy which will be shared with the community later this fall.
The summary report about this community engagement is now available here.
Watch for more information soon about community information sessions in November, that will provide updates about construction planning and the traffic management strategy to be implemented.
