Council approved the Spring Garden Road Functional Design Report on April 16, 2019. This report included two recommendations on how to proceed:

  1. Design and construct Option 4, streetscaping improvements between South Park Street and Queen Street.
  2. Collect data during construction and come back to Regional Council with a recommendation on loading, traffic diversion and a daytime transit priority corridor.

Background
Spring Garden Road is one of the region's busiest pedestrian shopping streets and a major bus corridor. Regional Council has approved a major project further to the Halifax Economic Strategy, to signal their commitment to the downtown core with meaningful investment. Following the success of the Argyle/ Grafton project, completed in 2017, Imagine Spring Garden Road aims to beautify the street and improve conditions for residents to stroll, shop and catch a bus. First, a functional plan was undertaken for the entire corridor between Barrington and Robie Streets. This functional plan was approved by Council, and now that we have a shared understanding of how the street will work, a design exercise is identifying key elements to make the core area linking the popular Central Library to the spectacular Public Gardens a beautiful and welcoming place for people of all ages and abilities.
