SYDNEY, N.S. — A section of Charlotte Street is expected to be closed to vehicular traffic until October due to construction work on the $9-million downtown Sydney redevelopment project.
The first phase of the undertaking will begin Monday, July 4 on the block between Dorchester and Pitts streets. Businesses along that section will remain open and will still be accessible to pedestrians.
The work includes roadway excavation, waterline and utility installation, sidewalk construction, the installation of street elements and paving of the revamped section of road.
Transit Cape Breton bus routes will be altered and new shelters have been installed at the corner of George and Pitt streets where a temporary bus hub, presently located on Dorchester Street, will come into service once construction work begins on July 4.
