Water Street Open During Construction

On Monday, April 1, construction begins on Water Street between Bishop’s Cove and Ayre’s Cove for the second phase of a five-year project to rehabilitate underground infrastructure.

Water Street is open during this project. Hours of construction are Monday to Saturday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A section of Water Street between Bishop’s Cove and Ayre’s Cove will be converted to a one-way street heading eastbound. Westbound traffic will be temporarily detoured to Harbour Drive for the duration of the project. Beck’s Cove will be closed, and access given to local traffic only. See attached map.

To facilitate the construction work, several parking meters will be bagged throughout the work zone indicating no parking at those metered spaces.

Two Metrobus stops will be affected with a Water Street detour in place – details are available on the Metrobus website.
