Jan 30 – HRM – Winter Storm Update and Service Delays

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents of the following updates and delays to municipal services as a result of last night’s weather event.

Snow Clearing

Main arterial and bus routes have been and are continuing to be plowed, but blowing snow has resulted in them remaining snow covered at this time. They are passable with caution this morning, but motorists are advised that they may encounter white out conditions.

Residential streets are snow covered at this time with operations beginning to provide temporary plowed travel lanes for emergency vehicle and resident access. These streets will be completed once snowfall has ceased. These access lanes are only temporary.

Sidewalks: Pedestrians need to use caution this morning due to blowing snow and poor visibility. Please wear bright/ reflective/ high-visibility clothing so you can be seen by motorists and snow clearing crews. Operations will continue throughout today and tonight until completed as our latest forecast is still showing additional snow and ice pellets.

Halifax Transit

Several Halifax Transit routes are currently on a snow plan. Please follow @hfxtransit on Twitter for all service updates.

Recreation Programming

Several recreation programs will be delayed until 10 a.m. Some areas may experience longer delays. Please call your facility to find out what time your individual program will start.

Solid Waste Collection

Solid waste collection is still scheduled for today. Residents should expect delays.
