Update: This work will continue until Oct. 20.
The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents and motorists that starting on Monday, Market Street will be closed for six weeks between Sackville and Prince streets.
This closure is needed to facilitate the replacement of the sanitary main, sidewalk installation, and regrading of the street.
The closed section of Market Street will remain open to local traffic. Traffic safety personnel will be present to direct motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists around the worksite, as needed.
Motorists should expect delays in the area and are asked to take alternative routes whenever possible.
The municipality appreciates your patience while this work is completed.
