Cowichan Bay Road Construction

Cowichan Bay Waterworks District is upgrading the waterline along Cowichan Bay Road from Longwood to Glen.  This work was identified as a top priority in the Master Plan to improve fire flow for the middle bench and lower village areas.  There may be some short periods of time where the water pressure is lower than normal or the water will be shut off for those that live on Longwood.  

A team of three flaggers will be in place to guide traffic through the construction zone and on/off Glen and Longwood; the road will remain open.  Most work will occur in the shoulders on each side of Cowichan Bay Road and in a portion of the travelled surface.  The pull out at 4630 Longwood will be used as the staging area.  


Monday Sept 11 - 8 am to 5 pm - hydrovac and heavy equipment

Tues to Fri, Sept 12 -15 - 7 am to 5 pm - main construction period

Sept 18-22 - testing/labwork/test results

Sept 25-29 - final on-site connection work [most likely time for water shut off to Longwood]

Reminder - Stage 3 Water Restrictions remain in effect
