Ragged Lake Transit Center Access Project Moving Forward

Ragged Lake Transit Center Access Project Moving Forward
Last week HRM Council approved a tender for a new access road for the Ragged Lake Transit Garage. Once completed, the lights at the intersection of Prospect Road and Ragged Lake Boulevard will be removed. The Approved 2012/13 Project Budget includes funds for the Ragged Lake Transit Center Access project, which includes a right turn lane from Prospect Road to Ragged Lake Boulevard and a bus-only access ramp from Grassy Lake Boulevard to the off ramp of Hwy 103. This project will improve access and egress for Metro Transit Buses at the new transit garage. When the project is completed, the temporary signals at the intersection of Prospect Road and Ragged Lake Boulevard will be removed. Signals at this intersection were not warranted so the Provincial Traffic Authority authorized temporary signals on the condition that this access road would eventually be constructed. The scope of work on Prospect Road generally consists of the construction of an extended right turn lane from Prospect Road to Ragged Lake Boulevard, including: removals, grading, new asphalt, pavement markings and associated reinstatement. It is anticipated that work will commence within three weeks of the tender award and be completed by June 30, 2013. http://www.halifax.ca/council/agendasc/documents/121023ca1112.pdf    ...
