  1. Hello, i plan a trip from Parksville to Tofino on sept 30th, when you say …release at top of the hour… on Hwy 4 , what do you mean?

    • Good morning Louis – thanks for your question. Release at the top of the hour means that traffic being stopped to wait at the construction site will be let through the site at the top of the hour (at 11 am or at noon, etc.). Therefore, if you arrive at the eastern edge of the Kennedy Hill construction site between 2 pm and 3 pm, you can expect to wait until 3 pm, when the queue will be shuttled through the site and the site closed until the top of the next hour. We hope that this is helpful

  2. I’m having difficulty finding information about getting my private 5th wheel and truck weighed (per axle). There is a ‘self-weigh’ near me in Saanich however the electronic sign always seems to say “CLOSED”. Wondered if you could provide a number for other nearby sites or a phone number. Thanks.

  3. Please please please save the forests by putting up signs along highways about throwing cigarettes out the car window. Sad to say, I have been a passenger on many occasions and have witnessed people doing this in extreme heat waves.
    Alot of people do it out of a 25 year habit without even thinking about it (pure carelessness)or they have the psychological complex “it will not be MY cigarette that causes disaster”…I witnessed a fire starting as I demanded the driver pull over so I could find his cigarette in hot dry grass. I had a jug of water.Luckily.

    Please, it costs so little to put up reminder signs on highways of this major cause for forest fires, death, and destruction…if I saves one life it will be worth the cost and effort.
