If you are a Sooke commuter (current or future, like say in a decade), this might be of interest. Not too sure why it wasn’t addressed two decades ago, but I guess we have to take what we can get.
Following are two computer-generated simulations of current and possible traffic flows at the McKenzie Interchange. They are a bit long, but the portrayal of the existing bottle necks (including that of all roads leading to the current intersection) correlates accurately with real experience.
Also included are two images addressing transit integration and traffic flow management during construction.
