Notice of Construction - Lower Water Street

(Friday August 20, 2004) - Effective Sunday August 22, 2004, construction related to the Harbour Solutions Project - Sewage Collection System will necessitate the closure of Lower Water Street between Prince and George Streets. A full closure will be in effect for Sunday August 22nd only. Monday, August 23rd and Tuesday, August 24th single lane, two way stop and go traffic will be in effect. Normal traffic flow will resume after this 3 day period. Traffic control personnel will be on-site to assist motorists and ensure safe, timely traffic movement.

This construction is to allow for the drilling of alignment holes as part of the on-going construction of an underground tunnel running from the site of the Halifax Water Treatment Plant to an area roughly located at the intersection of Sackville and Lower Water Streets. The construction of this tunnel below the downtown core has and will continue to greatly reduce the traffic impacts associated with surface road work.

We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary construction may cause.
