No ribbons were harmed, cut or destroyed in the opening of this road. In fact, it seems, there was no fan fare at all, no announcement in sight …. In near silence (except for some country tunes), Sooke PocketNews drove down the newly paved Brownsey Boulevard today. Here’s what it looked like from our dashboard, driving from Sooke Road down the Brownsey Boulevard and onto Goodmere Rd:
As per an earlier rendition of District of Sooke infrastructure map (below), Brownsey Boulevard has been completed down to, and joined with, Goodmere Road.
We encountered a few other vehicles on this route, and there were no barriers in place, so the assumption at SPN is that this Boulevard is now open.
Or, at the very least, it’s not barricaded shut.
