McDonald Park Road multi-use path completed

  • News

The District of North Saanich is pleased to announce that construction of the McDonald Park Road multi-use path, a key initiative in both the District’s Active Transportation Plan and Tseycum Creek Integrated Stormwater Management Plan, has been completed.

The project, which spans between Mills Road and Glamorgan Road, features a multi-use pathway overtop of storm sewer improvements. Initially the project was identified to provide a safe, separated route for pedestrians and cyclists between the existing multi-use path at Glamorgan Road connecting to the Lochside Trail and the airport Flight Path trail at Mills Road. The path was constructed on top of a large concrete box culvert that replaced an open ditch on McDonald Road that was prone to localized flooding. This culvert has been sized to handle increased flows due to climate change and will help protect businesses and residences along the corridor.

“On behalf of Mayor and Council we are excited to see this multi-use path project completed. These paths provide safe and desirable space for physical activity, as well as additional network opportunities for transportation and recreation,” said District of North Saanich Mayor Peter Jones.

In Feb. 2021, the District was a recipient of the B.C. Active transportation Infrastructure Grants Program in the amount of $500,000.
