Halifax Water would like to advise motorists that crews will remain on-site on Dunbrack Street, near Walter Havill Drive, restoring the work site area and street. This work is expected to continue into Thursday, July 27.

Two-way traffic will be maintained on Dunbrack Street, with lane reductions in both directions as needed on Dunbrack Street between Highway 102 and Osborne Street, Halifax. Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to manage traffic flows. Sidewalks remain open.

Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure repair work may cause.
