Overnight snow removal on downtown Halifax streets

Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is asking residents to refrain from parking on select streets in downtown Halifax tonight to assist with overnight snow removal. 

Barricades will be placed at the end of the streets where this snow removal work will take place. Traffic will be permitted to travel through but there will be no parking. Tonight crews will focus on removing snow from the following streets:

  • Spring Garden Road from Cathedral Lane to Barrington Street (both sides)
  • Blowers Street
  • Grafton Street
  • Carmichael Street
  • Market Street

Residents are asked to move their vehicles off the street in those areas between 7 p.m. tonight and 7 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22. Residents are reminded that under Section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, vehicles can be ticketed and towed any time of the day or night if they are obstructing snow clearing.

Snow storage is over-capacity in these areas following 80 cm of snow accumulation last week in the Halifax region. Removing the snow from these areas will help maintain parking in the business districts and ensure emergency vehicles, buses and other traffic can safely access the streets throughout the winter.

Please note the municipal overnight winter parking ban has been lifted until further notice to allow residents to park in areas where crews won’t be undertaking snow clearing operations.
