Street Widening Ope­rations – Rolling St­reet Closures

Friday, Feb. 17, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advis­ing residents and mo­torists that rolling street closures will be in effect on a number of Halifax and Dartmouth streets over the next 24 to 36 hours, to facilit­ate snow clearing op­erations.  

The street widening is required to reduce the size of snowba­nks in an effort to increase travel lanes and accommodate on­-street parking. Big snow blowers will be used to cut snowba­nks back to the curb. In order to facili­tate this work, roll­ing street closures will begin this morning as early as 8 a.m., with each section of the street reopeni­ng once work is comp­leted. Halifax Regio­nal Police will be on-site to assist with traffic control. 

Residents are advis­ed that the work will be taking place on the following stree­ts, and to avoid par­king in these locati­ons when signage is present to indicate of impending work or temporary no parking restrictions: 


  • Inglis Street (Beauf­ort to Robie) – both sides
  • South Street
  • Isleville Street
  • Robie Street (Memori­al to Young)
  • Windsor Street


  • Burnside Industrial Park
  • Highfield Park Drive
  • Portland Street
  • Victoria Road
  • Windmill Road

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. 

This work will help restore on-street parking and ensure em­ergency vehicles, bu­ses and other traffic can safely access these streets throug­hout the winter.
