Haley Rd. Trail Project Begins May 16th

The new trail will be built along the east side of Haley Road, extending the trail on Haley from Starrs Road all the way to Argyle Street.

Wednesday, May 4th, 2022 - Yarmouth, N.S. – Construction of the Haley Road multi-use trail (Phase 4) connecting Forest Street and Argyle Street is set to begin on May 16th. This fourth phase of multi-use trail construction will see trail added in an area not currently serviced by sidewalks. The trail will be built along the east side of Haley Road, extending the trail on Haley from Starrs Road all the way to Argyle Street.

For the duration of the project, traffic control will be in place and a single lane of traffic will be maintained. Drivers using the area should expect delays. For added safety, snow fencing will be in place to separate working areas from the public. Work will begin at the intersection of Haley Road and Forest Street and finish at Argyle Street and Haley Road. The project is expected to take 8-10 weeks (weather dependent).

Regular updates on the project and any significant disruptions in the area will be communicated to the public by the contractor and the Town of Yarmouth. Updates will be made on the Town of Yarmouth website, social media (Facebook and Twitter), and through the town's community notifications service "Alertable".

About Recent Multi-Use Trail Projects

In July of 2021 the Town of Yarmouth, the federal government, and the province of Nova Scotia announced a $2.36 million investment in multi-use trails. This funding allows for completion of a series of multi-use trails/sidewalks, adding to trails already built. These shared paths will be fully accessible and will accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The trails will also offer pedestrian access in areas where no sidewalks were previously available. Multi-use trails are a key component of the town's Active Transportation Master Plan developed in 2010.

The new trails will benefit high school students who walk on the west side of Haley Road to get to Starrs Road during their lunch hour, providing added safety. Seniors and other residents on Haley Road who wish to walk to Starrs Road (Commercial Hub) will experience the benefit of exercise within proximity to their residence.

Phase 1 of this initiative was completed in the fall of 2020 with the addition of an asphalt trail between Forest Street and Parade Street on Haley Road.
Phase 2 was completed in the fall of 2021. An asphalt multi-use trail was built between Starrs Road and Parade Street on Haley Road.Phase 3 was completed fall of 2021.

Phase 4 is the current project that will see a multi-use trail built between Forest Street and Argyle Street on Haley Road.
Phase 5 involves a rebuild of the intersection at Haley Road and Starrs Road. This will include upgrading the traffic lights and concrete islands. This work will be completed in the fall of 2022.
