Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 (Halifax, NS) - Dexter Construction, on behalf of Halifax Water, is undertaking construction activity along the BLT and Chain of Lakes trails related to the Lakeside Pumping Station Diversion Project.
The project involves the installation of approximately 8.5 kilometres of new sewer pipe from Raines Mill Road to the area of the Atlantic Superstore on Joseph Howe Drive.
Part of this work will require the closure of the Highway 102 on and off ramps at the intersection of Joseph Howe Drive to allow for reinstatement of the concrete road surface in the intersection following the recent pipe installation work. This closure will be in effect from 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22, until 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 25. During this closure there will no vehicle access inbound or outbound to Highway 102 at the intersection. Joseph Howe Drive will remain open.
Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to maintain communication with local residents and businesses, and help minimize disruption.
Motorists are asked to use alternative routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones.
We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.
