Attention motorists, Liquiforce, on behalf of Halifax Water, will be undertaking wastewater (sewer) system cleaning and rehabilitation, beginning tomorrow (Friday, August 18th), as part of the Northwest Arm Trunk Sewer Replacement Project.
This wastewater system work will require the closure of both outbound lanes of Quinpool Rd. from MacDonald St. to the Armdale Roundabout to all but local traffic from Friday, August 18th until approximately Friday, September 1st, weather permitting. Outbound lanes on Quinpool Rd. will be detoured at Connaught Ave. or MacDonald St. (see map below). The outbound lane closures will remain in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the duration of the work. The sidewalk adjacent to the outbound traffic lanes will also be closed.
Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in the inbound lanes.
The above noted work will also require the full closure of Horseshoe Park for the duration of this work. Horseshoe Park is located between Quinpool Rd. and the North West Arm.
Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to ensure smooth traffic flow around the work zone. On site personnel will also maintain communication with local residents and businesses to help minimize disruption. Motorists are asked to use alternate routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones.
We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.
