Friday, Feb. 13, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Crews are continuing to haul away snow from clogged streets and intersections overnight tonight in preparation for more snow on the weekend.
Work has been happening day and night to address problem areas by removing snow from cul-de-sacs and bus stops, pushing back and removing snow banks, and widening intersections and turning lanes across the Halifax region. Over the past week, crews have removed close to 1,900 dump truck loads of snow — that’s enough snow to cover roughly 16 hockey rinks.
Tonight crews will focus on the following streets:
- Birmingham Street
- Granville Street
- Bedford Row
- Agricola Street between Cunard and Almon streets
- Quinpool Road between Robie Street and the Armdale Rotary
- Henry Street between South Street and Coburg Road
- Vernon Street between Coburg Road and South Street
- College Street
- Fenwick Street
- Victoria Road between Queen and Ochterloney streets
- Ochterloney Street between Dundas and Maple streets
- Queen Street between Victoria and Irishtown roads
This work will begin at 9 p.m. and continue until 6 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 14. 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.
