Project Highlights

BeaverBank Bypass


The proposed Beaver Bank Bypass is located in Upper Sackville and Beaver Bank in the Halifax Regional Municipality. The Bypass roughly parallels the existing Beaver Bank Road along the west side beginning at Highway 101 approximately one kilometre west of the Lucasville Road overpass. The proposed alignment intersects Highway No. 1 east of Wilson Lake Drive and extends northward between Fenerty and Wilson Lakes and between Hamilton and Tucker Lakes. It passes around Rasley Lake to the west and north terminating on the Beaver Bank Road south of Birch Road. Two connectors, one south of Feely Lake and another north of the Greenforest subdivision, join the proposed Beaver Bank Bypass to the Beaver Bank Road and form part of the proposal.


The purpose of the proposed undertaking is to construct an arterial roadway extending from Highway 101 to the Beaver Bank Road. The proposed roadway is a 10.4 km limited access four-lane divided arterial intended to alleviate current and projected congestion on the local highway network.

The Department of Transportation and Public Works considers the proposed Beaver Bank Bypass as an integral and necessary element of the future transportation network serving Beaver Bank and Middle Sackville.
