UPCOMING INTERSECTION UPGRADES IN AND AROUND BRIDGEWATER BUSINESS PARK + ST. PHILLIPS STREET PLAYGROUND
Work will begin late this week on a series of street and intersection improvements in and around the Bridgewater Business Park.
The project, being carried out thanks to a partnership between the Town of Bridgewater and Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR), is designed to improve vehicle and pedestrian traffic flow in and around the Bridgewater Business Park prior to construction of the new Highway 103 Interchange between Exits 12 and 13 next year.
The seven streets and intersections that will be upgraded as part of this summer/fall project include:
▪ The addition of a right-turning lane from Wentzell Drive on to Logan Road, plus new curb and gutter and sidewalk
▪ The addition of a right-turning lane from York Street on to Victoria Road, plus additional curb and gutter and sidewalk, and traffic light replacement
▪ The addition of turning lanes and intersection realignment at York Street and North Park Street, plus curb and gutter and sidewalk
▪ Street improvements (realignment) on North Park Street
▪ Improvements at the North Park Street and Wentzell Drive intersection
▪ Improvements at the St. Phillips Street and North Park Street intersection
▪ Improvements at the St. Phillips Street and Victoria Road intersection
Work is expected to begin this week at two locations: the intersection of North Park Street and St. Phillips Street, and on North Park Street (realignment). All seven improvement projects are expected to be complete before the end of the 2020 calendar year.
Motorists travelling through the Bridgewater Business Park over the next few months should budget extra travel time to reach their destination and are asked to travel through work zones with care.
As work begins at each project locations, you’ll be able to track work locations and plan your commute using mapping information that will be posted at www.bridgewater.ca/roads.
ST. PHILLIPS STREET PLAYGROUND
The work taking place at the intersection of St. Phillips and North Park Streets will mean the St. Phillips Street Playground will be closed to the public, beginning August 21.
While we regret this temporary closure, as street improvement projects are taking place, there will also be playground/park improvements taking place simultaneously at this site.
We look forward to sharing with the public when the new St. Phillips Street Playground is once again open and ready for public use.
