Bus on Bayers Road


Bayers Road Transit Priority Bus Lane and Street Improvements

The tender for Phase 1 of this project, the construction of dedicated bus lanes on Romans Avenue to Connaught Avenue, was awarded to Dexter Construction Company Limited on June 23, 2020. Phase 1 construction is anticipated to begin on July 6, 2020 and will take two construction seasons to complete. This project is a key component of Halifax Transit’s Moving Forward Together Plan (2016) and the Integrated Mobility Plan (2017), which recommend investment in transit lanes for the Bayers Road corridor in order to give priority to buses over general traffic, improve transit reliability, and ultimately encourage more people to use transit.

In addition to regular public service announcements during construction, general project construction updates will be posted to this page as required. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during the construction phase. View the original staff report (keep scrolling down for Bayers Road information).
