Trail and Park Closures

As we look ahead to the weekend storm, which currently has 2 weather alerts including a wind warning and tropical cyclone information statement, we ask the public to please keep out of parks, green spaces and trails in Bible Hill until further notice next week.
With heavy rain and wind on the way, there is high probability of washouts and fallen or partially fallen trees.
Trail, park, and green-space closures will allow our maintenance team to assess conditions after the weather event has passed to ensure that these properties are safe for public use.

Main Street Sidewalk Renovation
- Published: Friday, 23 June 2023
Starting July 4 until August 2, the sidewalk on Main Street, Bible Hill (between Century Honda and Windsor Avenue) will be closed for construction.
For those with accessibility needs which may be impacted by the closure, please get in touch with the Village office to discuss how we can accommodate.
Main Street will have a one-way traffic detour which Nova Scotia Department of Public Works has approved. Traffic normally in the lane closest to the sidewalk will be detoured at Pictou Road to Vimy Road and Farnham Road, rejoining Main Street at Park Street.
Signage and other traffic control measures will be in place to guide drivers. Please be cautious when entering the work area, as traffic will be flowing in only one direction.
The contractor will do their best to minimize driveway disruptions and provide gravel ramps for access. Please drive slowly on the ramps.
Avoid parking on Main Street or the detour route to reduce congestion.
Thank you for your patience as we improve Main Street!
