Downtown Halifax Road Construction

(Friday, March 16, 2007) - Attention motorists, on-going Harbour Solutions Project construction on Sackville Street between Hollis and Lower Water Streets has reduced Sackville Street to single-lane traffic.

The expected duration of construction is four weeks.

The sidewalk on the south side of the street will be closed for the duration of the work. The sidewalk on the north side of the street will be open at all times. No parking will be available in the work zone. No loss of municipal services is anticipated during the construction.

Please note, all shops and services adjacent to the work zone will remain open during the construction period.

Construction at this location is a continuation of previous activity in the area. This pre-commissioning work will complete final connections to the new sewage collection system infrastructure allowing for the diversion of flows to the Halifax Wastewater Treatment facility later this year.

The hours of work will be Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with weekends as required.

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

We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary Harbour Solutions Project construction may cause.
