Arts Centre Expansion – Construction Update 
Dalhousie is building a three-storey addition to the Seymour Street side of the Dalhousie Arts Centre, with an anticipated completion of fall 2021. This work will involve construction noise throughout the project. The main activity now is preparing the foundation.

The rock breaking is being scheduled around critical activities/classes/exams for FSPA and Cohn practices & performances. Rock drilling and blasting should now be complete.

2. Road & Sidewalk Closures:  Short single lane closures are to be expected. Approximately 8 legal HRM parking spots will be eliminated for the duration of the Project – Completion in late Fall of 2021. Cars parking along Seymour St. that are not in valid HRM Parking Spaces will receive HRM parking tickets.
