So I was thinking on the drive home today about everyone’s commute to and from and a light bulb hit…why not have three lanes that alternate lane use [on Sooke Road, from the end of the four-lanes all the way to Sooke]?
There would be lots of room for a third lane with minimal blasting needed.
With that and traffic circles at Otter Point and Church, it would make for smooth sailing to and from town, with the ability to close a lane if needed for accidents but still keep traffic moving.
