Liquiforce, on behalf of Halifax Water is currently undertaking wastewater (sewer) system cleaning and rehabilitation on Quinpool Road as part of the Northwest Arm Trunk Sewer Replacement Project.
This wastewater system work currently has both outbound lanes of Quinpool Rd. from MacDonald St. to the Armdale Roundabout, to all but local traffic. On Friday, August 25th, approximately one week ahead of schedule, one additional lane will be reopened. A total of three lanes will be open.
Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in the inbound direction during morning peak traffic flow times. The lane drop will be reversed in the afternoon to maintain two lanes of traffic outbound during afternoon peak traffic times. The single lane closure will remain in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until approximately September 15th.
The above noted work will also require intermittent full and partial 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.
