Downtown Halifax Road Construction

(Friday, November 4, 2005) - Attention motorists, continued Harbour Solutions Project related construction on Upper Water St. will require the existing four lanes on Upper Water St. to be narrowed to a two lane two way street, near the Karlsen Shipping building, with traffic diverted to the current southbound lanes.

During this work, traffic traveling north on Upper Water Street passing Casino Nova Scotia will be limited to right turns only. Traffic traveling north on Barrington to Upper Water St. will be diverted up Cogswell St.
Motorists are also advised that Harbour Solutions - Source Separation work will necessitate the continued closure of Grafton St. between Prince and Carmichael Streets.

Access to Grafton St. will be for local traffic only. Sidewalks will remain open at all times.

The duration of construction is approximately 2 weeks.
The hours of work for both projects will be Monday to Friday from 7 A.M. to 6 P.M., with some weekend work as required.

Experienced traffic control personnel will ensure smooth traffic flow. On site personnel will also maintain communication with local residents and businesses to help minimize impacts.

We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary Harbour Solutions Project and Harbour Solutions-Source Separation work may cause.
For more information please contact Anneli Lehikoinen at 425- 0141, James Campbell at 490-4604 or check our website at
