Implementation of Reversing Lane on Chebucto Road between Roundabout and Mumford Road

(Thursday PM, November 20, 2008)- The overhead lane designation signage for the Reversing Lane on Chebucto Road between the Roundabout and Mumford Road will be activated and fully operational as of midnight Thursday, November 20, 2008, alternating the centre reversing lane at noon and midnight.

This new reversible lane operation on Chebucto Road is similar to that on both the Herring Cove Road and Macdonald Bridge to which many drivers are already accustomed. The middle lane will operate in the east bound (inbound) direction to move traffic onto the peninsula between midnight and noon and in the west bound (outbound) direction to move traffic off of the peninsula between noon and midnight.

Motorists are advised to watch for and obey the painted lane markings and especially the new overhead lane control signals which will indicate the direction of travel permitted in the reversible lane depending upon the time of day.

HRM wishes to express its thanks and appreciation to motorists for their cooperation over the length of this project.
