Restrictions ranging from street closures to parking bans will begin Thursday in parts of peninsular Halifax to help with Dorian cleanup efforts.

Since the post-tropical storm with hurricane-strength winds worked its way through the region last Saturday, crews have been busy clearing up downed trees on residential streets — and officials at city hall say the work is far from over.

Prohibited parking signs will be in place and the municipality warns any vehicles impeding work will be towed. Some areas may have traffic personnel.

The restrictions will be in place until the work is done, which could take several days.

These are the affected areas:

  • 1675 Oxford Street — Traffic control only.
  • 6217 Pepperell Street — Closed to all but local traffic, no parking from Vernon to Preston streets.
