The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the Grafton Street portion of the Argyle & Grafton Shared Streetscape Project is now open to traffic.
Grafton remains a two-way street with marked drop-off and loading zones, as well as accessible parking. There will be no standard on-street parking on the streetscape between Carmichael and Prince streets.
The Argyle & Grafton Shared Streetscape project includes “pedestrian zones” and “shared zones.” Pedestrian zones are defined by elements such as trees, planters, benches, bike racks and a tactile warning strip (a bumpy border at the edge of the shared zone). Vehicles are not permitted to drive in the pedestrian zones and must stay inside the warning strips.
Argyle Street is in the final stages of completion and will be fully open in the coming weeks. Stores and restaurants on Argyle remain open for business while work is being finished.
