On or about Monday, May 9th Halifax Water, through its contractor Eisener Contracting Limited, will be replacing a section of sewermain on Shore Drive in Bedford between civics 759 and 860.
There will a road closure in place between civics 759 and 860 on Shore Drive. During the course of this upgrade, some residents along Shore Drive and surrounding area will be required to access their homes using an alternate route (see road closure map). Residents living within the work zone will be guided by traffic control staff to allow access to their homes as needed. During evenings and weekends one lane will be open in the work zone to local traffic only.
The duration of construction is approximately 4 weeks, weather permitting. Hours of work will be Monday–Friday 7am-7pm.
Escorted pedestrian access will be maintained in the work zone. Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to ensure smooth traffic flow. On site personnel will also maintain communication with local residents and businesses to help minimize disruption.
Motorists are asked to use alternate routes where possible and to proceed carefully through the work zone. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones.
We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause. For more information on Halifax Water please visit us on YouTube, or follow us on Twitter @HalifaxWater.
