Friday, Feb. 19, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that there will be traffic delays on the Bedford Highway near Larry Uteck Boulevard over the next eight months to facilitate installation of underground utilities for a new private development in the area.
Lane drops will be in place while this work is underway and crews will alter the centre line of the street, as required, which may force temporary closures of the bike lanes along the Bedford Highway. This work is expected to continue until October.
Motorists are also reminded that traffic will be stopped in both directions several times a day at or near the civic address 660 Bedford Hwy. while blasting is underway at the construction site. There will be no stoppages during peak traffic hours (7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m.). That work is continuing until April.
Further disruptions to traffic flow in this area are expected as the development project progresses. More information will be shared with the public as it becomes available. The municipality regrets any inconvenience this work or the delays may cause.
