Halifax Road Construction

(Friday, December 16, 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.

The expected duration of construction is mid to late December. Traffic flow improvements have been made to the work site with repaving in the area of Casino Nova Scotia and on completed sections of Upper Water St.
Road work is also continuing at the intersection of Barrington and Duffus Streets. Two lane traffic will be maintained. Vehicles traveling east on Duffus St. will not be permitted to make left turns onto Barrington St.

The expected duration of construction is mid to late December. The Barrington St. section of this work area has been paved to improve traffic flow.
The hours of work at both sites will be Monday to Friday from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M., with some weekend work as required.

Experienced traffic control personnel will ensure smooth traffic flow at all locations. 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 work may cause.
