Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Crews are continuing to haul away snow from clogged streets and intersections overnight tonight.
Work has been happening day and night to address problem areas by removing snow from cul-de-sacs, pushing back and removing snow banks and widening intersections and turning lanes across the Halifax region. Crews are also hauling snow away from blocked bus stops. Over the last two nights, crews have removed approximately 865 dump truck loads of snow.
Tonight crews will focus on the following streets:
- Grafton Street
- Market Street
- Sackville Street between Brunswick and Lower Water streets
- Barrington Street between Spring Garden Road and Morris Street
- Gottingen Street between Uniacke Street and Rainnie Drive
- Queen Street in Dartmouth, between Alderney Drive and Dundas Street
- Ochterloney Street
- Bedford Highway from Union Street to Hammonds Plains Road
If time permits, crews will move on to snow removal on Quinpool Road, Granville Street and Bedford Row. Other crews will also be out removing snow piles that are causing visibility issues in the Fairview, Clayton Park and Spryfield areas.
Crews will begin hauling snow at 9 p.m. and continue until 6 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 12. Residents are reminded that as per Section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, they should remove their vehicles from the streets while snow clearing operations are underway so crews have full access. Vehicles in violation may be ticketed or towed, at any time of the day or night.
