Working together to develop a shared vision for a great street in Halifax
Spring Garden Road is one of the region's busiest pedestrian shopping streets and a major corridor for Halifax Transit. Anchored by the popular Halifax Central Library at one end and the spectacular Halifax Public Gardens at the other this area could benefit from street and sidewalk improvements. Stemming from the Halifax Economic Strategy, Council approved two priority streetscape projects to signal their commitment to the downtown core with meaningful investment. Argyle/ Grafton was completed in 2017 and Spring Garden Road was approved as the second project. The Integrated Mobility Plan approved in December 2017 underscores the need to take a “Complete Streets” approach which considers how streets function as places as well as a transportation links, and aims to improve comfort and safety, particularly for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users.
