Summer may begin.

Running loose around the Citadel

Runners charged through the moat and across the parade grounds during the MEC Citadel Highlander Race on Sunday. Parks Canada staff steered racers around the course and warned fans from lingering under ramparts that still glistened with icicles. Naturally, organizers added a few historical touches to the event. A Highlander led the pre-race stretch with exercises used by soldiers long ago. Another fired a musket to start the race.

A slow stroll down the fast lane

Fifty-year-old new dad Glenn Fraser pushes daughter Lucy down Agricola during the inaugural Switch Open Street Sundays event today. Roads from Victoria Park to the corner of North and Agricola were closed to cars for the benefit of walkers, in-line skaters, skateboarders and cyclists.

Itching for speedskates

The oval is starting to look like, well, a speedskating track. Workers at the Commons were tidying up the concrete pad Friday.

More from today’s cycling festival

Samba Nova drummers, some wearing bike helmets, entertained cyclists who lounged around on the Commons.

HALIFAX — City traffic planners will host a public meeting on Wednesday to explain their take on roundabouts, specifically the one proposed for the intersection of Duffus, Novalea and Devonshire. The meeting will be held at St. Stephen’s School, 3669 Highland Avenue from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

City council has already approved the roundabout in principle. A recent city staff report in favour of roundabouts provided the diagram above, as well as proposed makeovers for the intersections of Cunard-Agricola-North Park (see below), Robie-Quinpool-Bell and North Park-Trollope-Cogswell-Ahern-Rainnie Drive.
