Temporary transportation disruptions on South Park Street
The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents of transportation disruptions to accommodate repairs to the property on South Park Street where a crane collapsed during Hurricane Dorian.
The temporary disruptions are as follows:
Southbound transit routes 4, 10 and 14 that travel between Spring Garden Road and Morris Street will be detoured to Cathedral Lane. Northbound transit routes will remain unaffected.
There will be no service to the Halifax Transit stop 8308 on South Park Street south of Spring Garden Road, as well as stop 8313 on South Park Street north of University Avenue.
A temporary stop has been installed on Cathedral Lane to accommodate the detour.
There will be no change to service running northbound between University Avenue and Spring Garden Road, however there may be some delays due to the lane drop.
Pedestrians and cyclists:
The northbound sidewalk and bicycle lane are closed from 1471 to 1473 South Park Street (between Clyde Street and Spring Garden Road). A shared protected route for pedestrians and cyclists will be implemented and cyclists must dismount when using this route.
A total of 10 metered parking spaces will be temporarily removed on South Park Street, between Clyde Street and Spring Garden Road.
An altered centerline will be in place from 1471 to 1473 South Park Street (between Clyde Street and Spring Garden Road). Two-way traffic will remain.
Access to businesses in the area will be maintained at all times while work is underway. The project is expected to be complete by this summer.
