Construction Impacts

Thetis Lake Overflow Parking Lot 

Access to the Thetis Lake Overflow Parking Lot (80 Atkins Rd) will be impacted throughout the construction of the roundabout.

The parking lot will remain open to the public during the first phase of construction (November 2023 - January 2024); some parking spaces will be occupied by the contractor during this time. After January 2024, the lot will be closed for the remainder of the project and vehicle owners will be expected to find appropriate parking elsewhere.

Traffic Pattern Change

A single lane alternating traffic pattern can be expected throughout construction outside the hours of 3:00pm - 6:00pm. Please plan for alternate routes and expect delays when travelling through the area.
