Nova Scotia Power working in Armdale Roundabout to enhance Halifax Peninsula service

HALIFAX – Nova Scotia Power contractors will be working in the Armdale Roundabout on Friday, March 29 starting at 10:00pm, until Monday, April 1 at 5:00am, to increase service capacity and improve system reliability for customers in the surrounding areas.

 Crews will be replacing an underground utility chamber located on the Armdale Roundabout exit that connects to the Armdale substation. To safely facilitate this work, the Chebucto Road exit will be closed, and traffic will be reduced to one lane throughout the roundabout.

 Pedestrian access on the construction side will be closed, but all other access around the Armdale Roundabout will be maintained at all times. Traffic control personnel will be onsite to direct pedestrians safely around the work site as needed. The public is advised to anticipate delays in the area and take alternative routes, where possible.

 The Armdale substation is an integral part of our system that distributes electricity to customers in the Halifax Peninsula, Armdale, and western Halifax communities. Underground work in the Armdale Roundabout will enhance service reliability for customers in the event of unplanned outages or required maintenance.

 Nova Scotia Power thanks the public for their patience while this work is underway.
