LED streetlight conversion update – Districts 3 and 4

Friday, Jan. 27, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality previously advised residents of work that will take place in District 3 (Dartmouth South – Eastern Passage), and District 4 (Cole Harbour – Westphal) to convert traditional streetlights to new energy efficient LED streetlights.

This work will continue on various streets throughout districts 3 and 4 over the next week. Road users are advised that crews expect to be working on the following higher-volume streets during the upcoming week:

•             Shore Road (Eastern Passage)

•             Cow Bay Road

•             Caldwell Road

Work on these streets will generally take place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday, with occasional evening and weekend work.

For short periods (less than one hour at a time), traffic signals on these streets may be set to flashing red or possibly turned off completely to accommodate the works. Motorists are reminded that when signals are flashing red in all directions the intersection must be treated as a four-way stop. If any signals are turned off, traffic control personnel will be on-site to direct road users through the intersection.

The municipality apologizes in advance for any inconvenience or the work may cause.
