Caldwell Road – Lane Reduction for Water Main Repair

Halifax Water crews are repairing a water main near 1930 Caldwell Road, Eastern Passage.

This will require a lane drop around the work zone, reducing Caldwell Road to a single lane in this area. Experienced traffic control personnel are on-site to manage traffic flows.

Clovis Avenue – Water Main Repair

Halifax Water crews are on-site repairing a water main near 26 Clovis Avenue. Water service will be temporarily shut down in the area at approximately 10:00 AM. No estimate of restoration time.

Clovis Avenue is closed to all but local traffic.

Once the repair is complete, customers in the area may experience discoloured water.

Customers who experience discoloured water should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear. Do not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank, which could make the problem worse. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. To learn more about discoloured water, visit


Punch Bowl Drive – Drilling Work

Crews will undertake drilling work as part of a geotechnical investigation on January 14 – 16, and 18. This work will require rolling lane drops along Punch Bowl Drive between the hours of 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM.

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 improvement work may cause.

For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
