Natural Gas Pipeline Installation on Richmond St. and Devonshire Ave., Halifax

(Monday, June 21, 2010) -- Motorists are advised that, commencing on June 21, 2010, Heritage Gas, in conjunction with its contractor R.B. Sommerville, will be installing a natural gas steel pipeline on Richmond St. between Barrington St. and Devonshire Ave. and on Devonshire Ave. between Richmond St. and Novalea Dr. This work is the beginning of a pipeline project which will extend a natural gas transmission line from the Halifax Peninsula to the Bedford area

In order to install the pipeline as quickly as possible and minimize traffic disruption, Richmond St. from Barrington St. to Devonshire Ave. will be closed to vehicular traffic from June 21 to June 25, 2010. Access for local traffic and for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

On Devonshire Ave., two way traffic will be maintained at all times with traffic being diverted to the eastbound and westbound sides of the median as required.

This portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in three to four weeks. Where possible, motorists should plan alternate routes for the time of this construction.

Heritage Gas and HRM apologize for any inconvenience.
