Citizens are encouraged to attend an open house Thursday evening to discuss ways to improve the transportation network along Herring Cove Road.
Herring Cove Road is a key arterial roadway that links the Spryfield and Purcells Cove areas (and points beyond) to the regional centre via the Armdale Rotary. It currently accommodates more than 15,000 vehicles per day, and is served by several Halifax Transit routes.
It also functions as Spryfield’s main street, with a concentration of mixed use development that includes residential, commercial, institutional, and recreational.
Despite its significance in the regional transportation network, and importance to the local community, Herring Cove Road lacks a consistent vision in terms of how it should look and function.
The municipality wants to hear user experiences and suggestions on how to improve the way people travel along the busy corridor.
When: Thursday, Jan. 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (There will be no formal presentation so attendees are welcome to drop in at any time within this window)
Where: Captain William Spry Community Centre – Multipurpose Room, 16 Sussex St.
Another round of public engagement will take place next month once functional design options are created.
The open house will not have a formal presentation, but there will be display boards and planning staff on hand to answer questions.
