Cogswell Street Interchange Redevelopment


WSP’s Geomatics team completed a survey defining the legal boundary between the current public road network and private land holdings in downtown Halifax. 

  • The survey results will be used as the basis for a major redesign of the interchange. 
  • The initiative will dramatically reshape and revitalize the area, with a vision of a high-quality, mixed-use, pedestrian/transit/active transportation-friendly redevelopment that will connect downtown to northern Peninsula neighbourhoods and enhance access to the city’s historic waterfront area.
  • The Cogswell Street Interchange had originally been developed in the 1960s and the freeway along the waterfront area had been identified as an underutilized piece of transportation infrastructure.  Over the past several decades, innovative approaches to urban renewal and community involvement have revived interest in opening up downtown core areas.
