Halifax Regional Municipality & Ottawa team up to protect Shore Road with NBS

A portion of Shore Road, in Eastern Passage, NS, has been prioritized for the implementation of NBS to add climate resiliency from both coastal and overland pressures. The area has already been reinforced with conventional engineering solutions (including rip-rap); however, NBS are being planned to add more long-term resiliency to the shoreline, including reestablishing native vegetation and adding rain gardens. Costs for the $5 million project will be split between Infrastructure Canada and HRM. 

The project will improve the shoreline's ability to withstand increasing pressures relating to climate change (including reducing the risk of flooding, especially in storms), protect the roadway, improve quality of stormwater entering the ocean, and provide community recreation with a raised walkway.
