Traffic Delays Expected on Windmill Road/Akerley Drive This Weekend

(Thursday, September 29/05)-- Due to the extensive municipal upgrades being carried out at the intersection of Windmill Road and Akerley Boulevard, contractors will be required to dig under the roadway this weekend. Work is scheduled to begin 7 a.m. Saturday morning

As a result, motorists are advised to expect traffic delays due to various lane closures on Windmill Road over the weekend. HRM encourages motorists to seek alternate travel routes during this construction period to avoid delays.

Work has been ongoing since July on upgrades to the intersection, including installation of a retaining wall; new pumping station; traffic signal equipment for the new Bus Rapid Transit system; improvements to turning lanes; and street resurfacing.

The overall project is expected to be completed in mid-to-late November.

HRM apologizes to motorists for any inconvenience.
