Natural Gas Pipeline Installation

Robie Street Ramp Off MacKay Bridge


(August 5, 2010) -- Motorists are advised that on the weekend of August 6, 2010, Heritage Gas, in conjunction with its contractor R.B. Sommerville, will be installing a natural gas steel pipeline across the Robie St. ramp off the MacKay Bridge.  This work is the continuation of a pipeline project which will extend a natural gas transmission line from the Halifax Peninsula to the Bedford area.

To enable this work to be completed as quickly as possible, the Robie St. ramp off the bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic starting 6 pm on Friday, August 6 until 5 am on Monday, August 9.  This closure has been co-ordinated with a separately required closure of the MacKay Bridge to minimize traffic impacts.

Where possible, motorists should plan alternate routes for the time of this construction.

Heritage Gas and HRM apologize for any inconvenience.
