A media release issued today from the HRM Communications Office warns motorists and commuters in the downtown core to prepare for more one-way street conversions. Starting Monday, October 17th, Phase 2 of the city's planned traffic changes will go into effect on Lower Water Street.
The sections of the street that were previously two-way traffic zones, will now shift over to one-way zones heading in the direction of Upper Water Street. The modifications are part of a plan recommended by HRMbyDesign meant to improve the flow of vehicles along the city's heaviest-clogged downtown traffic arteries.
We want to know what you think. Will these changes improve your daily commute? Or is it too much confusion, too quickly? For more information check out the maps of traffic pattern changes on the Halifax Regional Municipality website: http://www.halifax.ca/traffic/StreetNetworkChanges.html
