Halifax pulling buses off roads Sunday night

By Steve MacArthur Feb 4, 2024 | 4:41 PM

The city is pulling buses off the roads for the second day in a row as white out conditions and heavy snow remains on roads.

Buses will be pulled off the roads at 9 p.m. (changed from 8 p.m.) on Sunday.

Halifax Transit says the same goes for ferry service.

A decision regarding service for Monday will be made early in the morning.

Clean-up continues but winds challenging 

Crews in Halifax are working to get the roads cleaned up.

“During snow events with over 30 centimetres of accumulation, our crews require additional time to clear snow. Crews will continue to work around the clock until the snow has been cleared from municipal streets, sidewalks and bike lanes.”

Residents are asked to avoid unnecessary travel for their own safety due to poor driving conditions and to allow crews to continue snow clearing operations safely.

Municipal offices

All municipal offices will be closed on Monday.

The city is asking employees who can work from home to do so.

All essential services, including 311 and winter operations, are maintaining service. Halifax Transit will be operating, weather depending.

Safety is the municipality’s top priority. Closing our offices will facilitate clearing efforts by our crews.

Parks & Recreation

Many municipal recreation facilities will be closed for the remainder of the day and will also be closed on Monday, February 5.

Solid Waste

Curbside collection of solid waste scheduled for Monday, February 5 is cancelled due to the winter storm. Recovery for February 5 collection will occur on Saturday, February 10.

Curbside garbage limits will be relaxed for Saturday, February 10 and Monday, February 12 for the missed collection days.

Please retrieve any waste you have placed for collection as to not interfere with snow clearing operations.

The permanent Household Special Waste Depot located at 20 Horseshoe Lake Drive will be closed on Saturday, February 10.

The Municipal Recycling Facility located at 20 Horseshoe Lake Drive will be closed Monday, February 5.

The parking ban will continue to be enforced on Monday from 1 to 6 a.m.

Residents are reminded that regardless of the status of an overnight winter parking ban, or whether you have received a notification, vehicles can be towed, day or night, at any time of year, if they are interfering with snow-clearing operations.

Residents are strongly encouraged to continue to park off-street to allow crews to clear snow as efficiently as possible.
