Response to COVID-19: Halifax Mobility Response – Streets and Spaces
The Halifax Regional Municipality continues to monitor and respond to the rapidly evolving effects of COVID-19.
As part of the Halifax Mobility Response Plan, Grafton Street, between Carmichael and Prince streets, will be temporarily converted into a one-way, southbound street to allow for additional patio space.
This change will be implemented on Friday, July 3 and will be in place until the end of September.
Sidewalks will remain open on both sides of the road. Parking and loading spaces will not be impacted while this adjustment is in place.
As part of the municipality’s ongoing engagement efforts for the Halifax Mobility Response plan, a Shape Your City Halifax project page has been created to provide an opportunity to share suggestions on where additional actions would be helpful to help residents move safely. The feedback will be valuable in helping municipal staff determine the next steps for making temporary changes to streets as a result of COVID-19.
As public health restrictions and recommendations change throughout the recovery phases, the municipality will continue to modify adaptations to the use of its streets, sidewalks and bike lanes.
