Downtown Halifax Road Construction

(Friday, April 20, 2007) - Attention motorists, beginning on or after Wednesday, April 25th, on-going Harbour Solutions Project construction will require the closure of Lower Water Street from Sackville to Prince Streets. The expected duration of construction is 8 weeks.

Truck traffic traveling north on Lower Water Street from Terminal Road and Marginal Road should use the alternate truck route on Morris Street.

Construction on Upper Water Street, in the area of Casino Nova Scotia and the former Karlsen Shipping Building, has reactivated the traffic diversion ramp in the area.

The expected duration of construction is 1 week.

Motorists are also advised that 1 eastbound lane on Sackville Street between Hollis and Lower Water Streets has been restored.

The sidewalk on the south side of Sackville St. will remain closed for the duration of the work.

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

The hours of work will be Monday to Friday 7:00am to 6:00pm, 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.
