Downtown Devastation

Posted By on Wed, May 10, 2017 at 4:05 PM

Come on, Halifax. The downtown core is a disastrous mess of construction sites and detours. Even beyond the Nova Centre debacle, trying to get down Barrington street now is terrible!! The old Misty Moon site cuts off the main drag, you're constantly crossing sidewalks and taking side streets to get around. I just moved here last summer and the number one complaint I over hear is from tourists trying to navigate the streets:”Is there construction on every street here?” “How many times will we have to cross this street?" and "Where the hell are we now?" are some of the more popular complaints.

While everyone is concerned with tourism dollars this year, I don't see a lot of repeat visitors. Better get that mess on the waterfront done before it gets too nice…I love this city, but we got to stop all this construction right in the middle of the summer...Tourists won't come back to a city they had so much trouble getting around in detours and shit. I am all for the growth of the city…but we've got to do some better planning. That waterfront being closed like that is just money being dumped in the harbour. —Halifax lover
