Drainage works close lane on TCH near Ladysmith

By Vaseline May27,2024

The Trans-Canada Highway will be reduced to one-lane southbound traffic between Thicke and Edgelow Roads near Ladysmith beginning Monday, May 27.

Officials urge caution at the intersection of Thicke Road and the TCH as crews work on drainage in the area.

According to a press release from the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure on May 24, “the work protects the long-term resilience of the highway, as flooding from nearby drains had affected the base of the road.”

The ministry noted that the timing of construction was chosen “based on weather and low traffic volumes to ensure minimal impact to travelers ahead of the summer travel season.”

The work is expected to last two weeks. The highway will be fully open at night and on weekends, but at the end of the two-week work period, the southbound slow lane will need to be closed 24 hours a day for five days to complete repairs.

“Drivers are reminded to monitor traffic management personnel and signage in the area, and to drive cautiously in active construction zones,” the release said.
