Friday, March 7, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Street tree pruning on Vernon Street between Pepperell and Linden streets will resume today (Friday, March 7). Work on Henry Street between Cedar Street and Coburg Road will also continue today.

Vernon and Henry streets will be open to traffic however there will be temporary lane closures and parking restrictions while pruning takes place. Pedestrians may also experience some delays due to temporary sidewalk closures.
Motorists are reminded to reduce speed when passing through the work area. Some temporary delays may occur and drivers are encouraged to use alternative routes. HRM apologizes in advance for any inconvenience these delays may cause.
