Construction Update - Phase 1 Bayers Road (Romans Avenue to Connaught Avenue) - June 29, 2020
The tender for Phase 1 of this project, the construction of dedicated bus lanes on Bayers Road (Romans Avenue to Connaught Avenue), was awarded to Dexter Construction Company Limited on June 23, 2020.
Phase 1 construction, from Romans Avenue to Micmac Street, will take two construction seasons to complete. The work began on July 6, 2020 and is anticipated to be completed by November 2020.
This project is a key component of Halifax Transit’s Moving Forward Together Plan and the Integrated Mobility Plan, which recommend investment in transit lanes for the Bayers Road corridor, and will give priority to buses over general traffic, improve transit reliability and ultimately encourage more people to use transit.
In addition to regular public service announcements, general project construction updates will be posted to this page as required. Your patience is appreciated while this work is completed.
