Water Street Traffic and Parking Update

2 hour parking restriction sign

With the completion of the Water Street construction project, traffic between Bishop’s Cove and Ayre’s Cove will return to two-way traffic on Wednesday, July 3 at 7:30 a.m.

Parking meters in the section of Water Street from Bishop’s Cove to Beck’s Cove have been removed during the sidewalk replacement. The City is temporarily installing signs to indicate a 2-hour timed parking restriction in this section of Water Street.

Timed parking zones are a short-term measure to encourage parking turnover. The City anticipates new parking meters and/or pay-stations will be installed this fall as part of a five-year Paid Parking Management Strategy.

The section of Water Street from Bishop’s Cove to Beck’s Cove will be equipped with signs to indicate to motorists that they are parking in a section with a time limit.

The fine for parking longer than the timed parking restriction is $100. Enforcement for the 2-hour parking restriction will begin Thursday, July 4.
