Friday, March 18, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the sidewalks bordering the site of a future development on Spring Garden Road will be affected over the next two weeks to facilitate demolition of the existing buildings on the site.
The sidewalk on the north side of Spring Garden Road and the sidewalk on the south side of Doyle Street will close later today between Brunswick Street and Queen Street. Signage will be posted ahead of the closures directing pedestrians to the nearest marked or signalized crosswalks in the area.
In addition to these closures, there will be built-out temporary walkways on Brunswick Street and Queen Street, between Doyle Street and Spring Garden Road, so pedestrians can travel through and access local businesses.
Vehicle traffic should not be affected during the demolition phase; however, the Halifax Transit bus stop normally located on that block of Spring Garden Road has moved to the corner of Grafton Street and Spring Garden.
Residents are advised that further sidewalk closures are expected as development continues on the site. Additional Public Service Announcements with specific locations and times will be communicated as available.
The municipality regrets any inconvenience these closures or the demolition work may cause; however, we would remind residents that these steps are necessary to ensure the public’s safety.
