As construction work continues on phase one of the five-year project to rehabilitate underground infrastructure on Water Street, the following traffic and parking restrictions are in effect:

  • Traffic on Water Street from Waldegrave Street to east of Adelaide Street is reduced to one lane, with traffic flow maintained by flagpersons. 
  • The left turning lane from Water Street to Harbour Drive at the Waldegrave Street intersection is closed. 
  • Bishop’s Cove remains closed to through traffic between Harbour Drive and Water Street. Access to and from the parking lots on Bishop’s Cove is via Harbour Drive. 
  • Adelaide Street remains closed to through traffic between Water Street and George Street. The taxi layby is temporarily moved to George Street. 
  • Queen Street remains closed to through traffic between George Street and Water Street. 
  • Metrobus stops are closed at 351 Water Street and east of Bishop’s Cove. The bus stop at Water Street and Beck’s Cove is open. 
  • Parking meters are bagged throughout the area to accommodate heavy equipment.
