The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents of a number of rolling street closures and traffic delays that will be in place across the region on Saturday, Nov. 11 to facilitate Remembrance Day parades.
Local ceremonies will take place to honour our veterans and those still serving with the Canadian Armed Forces.
Traffic delays will be in place at the following locations between 10:30 a.m. and noon:
· Veteran’s War Memorial at Sullivan’s Pond, Dartmouth – The parade will impact King Street, Ochterloney Street and Crichton Avenue.
· Province House, Halifax – The parade will impact Lower Water, Duke Hollis, Sackville and Prince streets.
· Cenotaph at Sackville Heritage Park, Sackville – The parade will impact Memory Lane.
· Cenotaph at Earl Francis Spryfield Memorial Royal Canadian Legion, Spryfield – The parade will impact Herring Cove Road and Sussex Street
Residents are reminded that the Royal Canadian Legion has moved this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony from Grand Parade to the cenotaph at Sullivan’s Pond. Residents are also encouraged to contact their local Royal Canadian Legion or visit their website to learn more about the ceremonies that will be held at various locations across the municipality
Motorists are advised to obey officers on the street and watch for increased pedestrian volumes throughout the morning. Given the anticipated traffic delays, those attending Remembrance Day ceremonies are encouraged to allocate extra time in their travel plans.
Residents are encouraged to take a moment on Nov. 11 to remember those who have served and continue to serve our country.
