Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that traffic on Lady Hammond Road is down to one lane in either direction at Commission Street right now due to a large hole in the pavement.
Crews have been working nights this week to replace a water main in the area and had to stop last evening when they discovered pipes of unknown origin. Staff members were brought in this morning to determine what the pipes are and work is expected to resume at about 10:30 a.m.
Once the work starts up again, there will be stop-and-go traffic on that section of Lady Hammond Road until about noon today. Motorists should expect delays and are asked to use alternative routes, if possible.
The municipality apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this work may cause.
