NOTICE from the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal

Micro-surfacing work on Reeves St will begin on Thursday, September 19th and continue through this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, September 21st and 22nd as part of the Destination Reeves Street Project. Work will begin at 6am and end at 7pm. 

There will be no immediate changes to the lane configurations and temporary pavement markings will be installed until further notice.  Motorists can expect delays and are asked to slow down and exercise caution when driving through the work area. Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal thanks you for your patience.

What is Micro-surfacing?

Micro-surfacing is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement.  It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt emulsion blended with finely crushed stone for traction.  This method will renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities. This process protects the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation.  Similar to painting a house, micro-surfacing creates a protective layer which preserves the underlying structure and prevents the need for more expensive repairs in the future.
