Commuters, residents, and Dartmouth Sportsplex users are about to see the first signs of the multi-million dollar revitalization of the recreation facility.
Beginning tomorrow, construction crews will be setting up in the east part of the Dartmouth Sportsplex parking lot, as they prepare for the 18-month project (see attachment). The first stage of work will focus on building a new front entrance to the facility.
This construction staging area will temporarily eliminate approximately 50 parking spaces.
This means transit users accustomed to being dropped off in the parking lot near the Thistle Street side of the Halifax Transit Bridge Terminal will now have to enter the terminal through the middle entrance.
It’s expected this disruption will last about a month.
When the $22-million revitalization is complete in the fall of 2018, the Dartmouth Sportsplex will boast a new gymnasium, fitness centre and studios, meeting rooms, as well as improved open and airy public spaces.
The Sportsplex will be closing to the public on Monday, May 29. The rink reopens again in the fall.
