From 7:00 AM TO 8:00 PM on January 27 (weather dependent), Clean Water Works Canada, on behalf of Halifax Water, will be undertaking wastewater system maintenance through cure-in-place-pipe (CIPP) trenchless lining technology in this area.
- On January 27 (weather dependent), Joffre Street between Medford Street and Tremont Street will be open to local traffic only. Detours in place.
- On January 27 (weather dependent), there will be a lane reduction on Joffre Street near the intersection of Medford Street. Detours will be in place.
- On January 27 (weather dependent), there will be a partial lane closure at the intersection of Joffre Street and Sinclair Street.
This work will not impact water service in the area.
CIPP lining involves reinforcing the inside of ageing underground pipes with a fabric liner that is saturated with a resin and then cured using UV light or steam. This process is significantly less intrusive to traffic than traditional open-trench excavations for pipe replacement work that would otherwise need to be done.
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.
To ensure the safety of our communities and our staff, please maintain a safe distance when Halifax Water staff or contractors are working in your area.
