“Designs are still underway for other projects including safety signs, the bus queue jump, the new bridge on Gillespie Road, the slow moving vehicle pullout, and the rest area,” said the ministry in a statement.

“More information on the timelines for these projects should be available by late spring.”

The ministry says it’s committed to ensuring traffic delays related to construction are kept minimal, especially during periods when there are high-volumes of commuters.
